SENECA FALLS, NY, Feb. 6, 2014 -- The third annual Heart of Industry Awards and Pulse of Industry Honor Roll nominations are now open. The awards recognize industrial operations for excellence in using pump technology to improve plant processing, satisfy customers and enhance modern ways of life.
The recognition programs were developed as part of Pump Appreciation Day -- a worldwide celebration of pumps as the heart of industry taking place Tuesday, April 8, sponsored by ITT Corporation's Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann brands. Honors will go to companies or plants nominated by the companies' sales offices and distributors, with a limit of one award winner per office. Organizations using Goulds Pumps products and services are encouraged to contact their distributors to learn more.
Anyone in a pump-related industry has the opportunity to submit nominations for the Pulse of Industry Honor Roll.
