Leading pump and pumping system manufacturer and energy solutions provider Wilo UK is celebrating winning a prestigious award in the Burton Business Awards 2017.
Burton Business Awards 2017
With its UK headquarters close to the A38 in Burton-upon-Trent, Wilo UK won the award for the Best Use of Innovation and Technology and was a finalist in the Employer if the Year Award as well. Judges for the Innovation and Technology Award were from leading Midlands based manufacturer JCB and they were hugely impressed by the presentation they received when they visited Wilo's offices – so much so they over-stayed their allocated time significantly!
“The judges were really impressed with the solutions we offer and the absolute passion we have for reducing operating costs for our clients," said Wilo Marketing Manager Morgan Warren-Ross. “What really enthused them was the materials engineering solutions we have driven from here in the UK, to provide solutions to the water companies responsible for providing drinking water, two thirds of which comes from underground here in the UK."
Wilo UK MD Richard Harden was delighted to have been shortlisted and then selected to win this award: “We are proud to live and work in an area which is rich with companies working hard in terms of innovation as well as being responsible and attractive businesses to work for. For us to recognised for this by the local business community is a real honour."
This is the latest in a string of awards the company has won in the past few years.
