It has been an exceptional year for welcoming new distributors into the Selwood family. Read on to learn more about them… Bermad Fluid Solutions has been operating in the mining and wastewater treatment sectors in Chile for the past 20 years and joined us as distributors earlier this year. BFS are well suited to Selwood Pumps, as they have the sales, engineering and service requirements to support our business and customers throughout Chile.
Selwood’s Hampshire Head Office is covered with fantastic festive designs thanks to a drawing competition run for the company’s staff. Selwood CEO Chris Garrett invited employees to encourage their children, grandchildren, neices and nephews to draw a picture representing what Christmas meant to them. The result was dozens of designs featuring Santa, reindeer, Christmas trees, snowmen and the occasional piece of Selwood plant and pump equipment!

Every day we wash, brush our teeth, use the toilet and drink clean water without giving a second thought to how lucky we are. But for millions of people around the world, access to water suitable for drinking and sanitation is a basic human right that they are denied – with potentially deadly consequences. Richard Brown, a director at Chandler’s Ford-based pump rental company Selwood, has seen first-hand how communities can be blighted by poor sanitation – and how they can be transformed with a little help.
