FOREWORD “As this is the first BPMA Pump Industry News of 2017 may I wish you all a healthy and prosperous year ahead. In 2016 you may remember that the BPMA celebrated its 75 th year and did so in style with its Gala Dinner in October which proved to be the perfect way to commemorate such an achievement with many past BPMA presidents and distinguished guests attending. Looking into the future who knows what opportunities or issues 2017 could bring for us all with Donald Trump now the USA president and the UK choosing to leave the European Union. One thing I am confident of is that the BPMA will continue to support all its members whether they sell products to the UK , to Europe or to the rest of the world.”

Regards, Peter Reynolds BPMA President
