History

In 1960, a new international association of pump manufacturers in Western Europe (EUROPUMP) was established aiming to represent common trade, standardisation and technical interests of European pump manufacturers. The core of this association was formed by the national associations of French and German pump manufacturers, joined by Italian and Belgian associations. Some other countries from Western Europe with an advanced pump industry joined EUROPUMP during the 1960s and 1970s. After the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989 EUROPUMP became open also for the countries from the former socialist block. The representatives of the Czech and Slovak pump manufacturers participated - as  guests - in the EUROPUMP meeting in French Biarritz in 1990. The Europump membership requirements for Czech and Slovak pump manufacturers were explained and the main requirement was the need to establish a national association. Accordingly in September 1990 the Czech and Slovak Pump Manufacturers Association came into existence and in the following year it was accepted as a regular member of EUROPUPM during the EUROPUMP meeting in Italian Venice. After the breakup of the common Czech and Slovak Republic, the national association changed its name and as the Czech Pump Manufacturers Association it now only represents the interests of the Czech manufacturers.
