Selwood stand at IFAT 2016

Selwood’s pump sales teams have returned from a successful trip to Munich where they exhibited at IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management.

During the exhibition, which was attended by 138,000 visitors from over 170 nations, Selwood’s representatives took the opportunity to catch up with suppliers, distributors and fellow industry professionals.

To mark their Platinum anniversary year, Selwood took along a platinum-wrapped D100 Super Silent Drainer pump which attracted the attention of visitors to the exhibition. The stand also featured the S100 and PD75 – two of the company’s best-selling models.

Selwood also used the event to showcase the S150M, a new medium head solids handling pump which is the latest addition to its extensive range. Selwood’s German distributors SPT were also on hand to look after visitors with their expert knowledge.

Rain for Rent, Selwood’s strategic partner for tanks and filtration equipment, also hosted a S100 super silent pump on their stand, connected to a tank outside.

Selwood’s team was led by CEO Chris Garrett, who said: “This was our fourth year exhibiting at IFAT and it offered an excellent opportunity to meet with our extensive network of international distributors.

“We gained a number of new contacts from around the world, from over 39 different countries and six continents. Sales and orders resulting from the show have made the exhibition extremely worthwhile for us. Our Seldredge range of products gained a lot of interest in particular.

 “It has already been a great year for us with the launch of our new website, the new S150M product and our 70th anniversary celebrations. These all helped to generate a real buzz around our activity in Munich and we are looking forward to enjoying a similar experience at other trade shows later this year.”

Selwood will be exhibiting next at Hillhead 2016 in Buxton, UK, from June 28 to 30
