Europump and International Women's Day


Mar 4, 2021

Celebrated on the 8 March each year, International Women’s Day is a special opportunity to shine the spotlight on women working in our industry, highlighting their unique experiences and expertise, and what led them on this career path.

Europump was established in 1960 and represents 16 National Associations in 14 EU Member States, Turkey, Russia, and Switzerland. Europump members represent more than 450 companies with a collective production worth more than €10 billion and employing 100,000 people in Europe. The ever-improving performance of liquid pumps increases the productivity of end user sectors and contributes to competitiveness and growth.

In our mission to serve as a spokesperson for pump manufacturers at the European level, we see that our industry is growing and forever evolving.

With almost half of all world exports and 40% of major patent applications, the Western European pump industry is the economic, commercial, and technological leader.

This presents more opportunities for women, from those looking to develop their careers further and to those who are just starting out, to take advantage of and take an active role in.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, and to showcase the opportunities in our sector, we are delighted to share with you the story of Kelly Polemi, Managing Partner of DP Pumps, highlighting her key role and motivation in shaping our industry.
