With 25 years of experience in the sector, Luke brings a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record of success to the role. He joins from the Northavon Group and Hydrovein where he was Managing Director and latterly Managing Director of their water business.

Under Peter’s guidance, Stockport-based PD Pumps Ltd was acquired too, a key pump distribution business for Robot and Landustrie pumps in the UK and Ireland

Commenting on the announcement, Peter said:

“We welcome Luke to Pump Supplies, and I’m confident his experience will be of huge benefit to Pump Supplies moving forward. He has a strong leadership philosophy of developing those around him to enable the growth potential in their careers, and that’s a very attractive quality to have in a senior leader.”

Luke shared his enthusiasm, stating:

“I’m pleased and excited to take on this opportunity. Having been a customer previously I’ve always been impressed with the way the 80-strong team conducts its business. I’m looking forward to continuing this approach to ensure customer loyalty and contract growth whilst drawing from my own experiences and strategic perspective.

“Pump Supplies has a tremendous reputation for delivering excellent pumping solutions and service. Our industry faces important environmental challenges and we’re well positioned to support customers face these issues moving forward.”
