The year 2016 is a very special one for Selwood and we’re going to be celebrating it in style at Bauma, the world’s largest trade fair.

We’ll be marking 70 years since Selwood was founded with a special stand at the event, which runs from April 11 to 17 at the Messe Munchen exhibition centre in Munich, Germany.

The stand will be shared with our German distributor SPT, who we are proud to have as Selwood partners and who are celebrating their own 40-year milestone in 2016.

The joint stand will include a hospitality area and bar where our colleagues from SPT will be serving up some traditional German beer.

Meanwhile, Selwood’s team will be bringing a British flavour to the occasion by pouring pints of Romsey Gold, a light summer ale brewed by Flack Manor Brewery, close to our headquarters in Hampshire.

To mark our Platinum anniversary year, the stand, to be found at Bauma at A6.231, will also feature a platinum-wrapped D100 Super Silent drainer pump.

And as well as the 70-year milestone, Selwood will be celebrating the newest addition to our world-leading family of solids handling pumps – the brand new S150M.

The S150m is a versatile medium head pump suitable for multiple uses including sewage and sewer bypass and over pumping, waste and wastewater applications, long distance water transfer and dewatering for sites and quarries.

Featuring Selwood’s trademark reliability and proven Selprime automatic self-priming technology, it complements our existing S range of solids handling pumps and was introduced in response to demand from customers and distributors for a versatile medium head pump to strengthen our comprehensive range.

Selwood is working with its global network of distributors to feature the S150M in its line-up of products for sale and rental around the world.

Bauma is the world’s leading trade fair for the construction machinery and mining industry and is expected to attract more than 3,400 exhibitors and over half a million visitors over the week.

Delegates will read a special Bauma edition of International Rental News which includes information about the S150M in a gatefold inside the front page.

Selwood remains one of the few British pump companies to design and manufacture, rent and sell its own range of surface diesel and hydraulic pumps, and is renowned as a world leader in pump manufacture and sales.
