SENECA FALLS, NY, Dec. 4, 2013 -- The third annual World of Pumps Quiz was recently launched by ITT’s Goulds Pumps brand.
The World of Pumps Quiz is the kick-off activity in an annual program leading to Pump Appreciation Day, initiated by ITT's Goulds Pumps brand and celebrated the second Tuesday in April. Pump Appreciation Day celebrates pumps as "the heart of industry" and features awards for outstanding organizations and individuals in the field, as well as activities to promote heart health.
"We're pleased to give pump industry professionals an opportunity to engage in an event that recognizes the fundamental role that pumps play in modern life and honors those who are making contributions to our industry," said Robert J. Pagano Jr., president of ITT's Industrial Process business, which includes the Goulds Pumps brand. "Last year's quiz was a tremendous success, with an almost 40-percent increase in participants, and we look forward to continuing to build on that momentum in 2014."
The third edition of the World of Pumps Quiz enables contestants to view questions from the first two editions. The latest version also features the advanced Expert Challenge level -- a second set of questions for users who want to test their knowledge to a higher technical degree -- and encourages players to submit their own questions to be considered for future inclusion.
Building on the success of the global pump industry challenge that last year attracted more than 15,000 participants from 151 countries, the quiz runs for 20 weeks, offering new sets of questions biweekly, and ends at midnight on March 30, 2014. ITT's Goulds Pumps brand is promoting the World of Pumps Quiz through LinkedIn ads and e-blasts that trade publications will send to their subscribers.
