Nominations are open for the third annual Heart of Industry Awards and Pulse of Industry Honor Roll. These recognition programs were developed as part of Pump Appreciation Day – a worldwide celebration of pumps as the heart of industry that will take place Tuesday, April 8, sponsored by ITT Corporation’s Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann brands. 

“Pumps function as the heart of industry, and our organization takes pride in celebrating the talented people and organizations that keep that heart beating smoothly and efficiently,” said Robert J. Pagano Jr., president of ITT’s Industrial Process business, which includes the Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann brands. “We seek to spotlight the companies and individuals that work so hard, usually behind the scenes, to literally keep industry moving. It’s an important part of Pump Appreciation Day, which is held the second Tuesday of April each year.”



The Heart of Industry Award recognizes industrial operations for excellence in using pump technology to improve plant processing, satisfy customers and enhance our modern way of life. Honors will go to companies or plants nominated by Goulds Pumps, PRO Services and Bornemann sales offices and distributors, with a limit of one award winner per office. Organizations using Goulds Pumps products and services are encouraged to contact distributors to learn more. 

Anyone in a pump-related industry has the opportunity to submit nominations for the Pulse of Industry Honor Roll. This individual recognition program is intended for people who want to commend co-workers and colleagues for their exceptional work in pump operations, maintenance or optimization. 

A brief online nomination form is available at www.pumpappreciationday.com. Nominators have the option to include a photo and a short story about the nominee. Criteria for being honored include: 

  • Improving pump efficiency
  • Providing outstanding maintenance
  • Solving engineering or manufacturing challenges
  • Exceeding expectations and providing extra effort to keep pumps running
  • Advancing environmentally responsive practices
  • Exemplifying high-quality customer service 

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, Feb. 28. Following an internal review process, officials representing ITT’s Goulds Pumps brand will add honorees’ names to the Honor Roll on www.pumpappreciationday.com. Chosen nominees for the Heart of Industry Award and the Pulse of Industry Honor Roll will be notified by email and will also receive special recognition on Pump Appreciation Day.
