Red Nose Day 2017 in Pump House

24th of March 2017 Pump House turned red!


Supporting Comic Relief we turned up to work wearing red tutu skirts, red tops and red ties and socks. And, of course, can’t forget to mention plenty of red noses!
It really was a great day at work and we all enjoyed a little bit of fun taking part in the Pump House red nose1Olympics.
Did you know some people in Pump House are very, very competitive, especially our Office Manager? (haha) Unfortunately, he didn’t beat our Digital Marketing Co-ordinator when it came to throwing red balls into the paper bin. Well, maybe he can try next time after a little bit of practice…
In this event, we raised £129.50 and we believe all this money will make such a difference to a worthy cause.

Winner of Easy-Fit Protective Guards Promotion

img_0215

Pump House ran a competition during 2016 for contractors to send images of their recently installed EASY-FIT Air Conditioning Protective Guards. 

The success of this competition saw many contractors proudly send snaps of their recently installed EASY-FIT, Wooden and VRV Guards in many sizes throughout various locations within the UK.

A panel of three judges looked at the many applicants and a winning prize was given to an installation that was submitted – details of which are summarised below:

Richard Bishop, who formed his business in 2006 is the director of ‘Climate Care Solutions’ and told us he has been installing the Pump House EASY-FIT Guards since his business launch.  Priding himself on quality and good installation practice he has no reason to use any other.  The winning photograph was of his recent installation of an AC system where he installed many units and needed them protecting on the Romford site of a well-established restaurant chain. 

Richard said “I never win anything so I was delighted to receive the phone call from the marketing team saying I had won an iPhone 6”

He was presented with his prize at Climate Center – Battersea by Dean Skerratt, Regional Sales Manager.

Woman vs Guard

guard2

A couple days ago, I took on a new challenge in my life.
I never ever thought that I would be doing this. Ever.
Me, the clumsiest person in the world, a person who falls over in public places and a person who is not able to travel by coaches because always ends up in different locations than planned… At the end of the day, I am the person who ended up in England with my own responsibilities and no one knows how the heck I managed that (I’m still unsure myself?)
Someone smart once said to me, that if you can laugh at yourself you have fun guaranteed for the rest of your life. And that somehow is how I keep going.
So, my sense of humour actually helped me to step out of the shadow (step up from behind the camera to the forefront) and bravely install an Easy-Fit Protective Guard.
Pump House manufactured Easy-Fit Guards, are weather resistant, steel mesh and offer a safe solution to vandalism and accidental damage of our expensive AC units and heat pump units. The package includes a wall frame, four arms, two side panels, one top panel and one front panel. There is also a bag of fixings included containing an allen-key, screws, bolts and washers. (Yes, I have learnt all this because I have never worked for an air conditioning and refrigeration company before. So, for a woman this is completely an unsexy industry, same as a man working in fashion and distinguishing between a peach colour and a salmon colour?)
First of all, I watched our handy Product Manager, Tony Horne, install this Guard before I started on my own and tried to remember every step by step. I really have to admit that it was simple to understand and remembering the process was easy.
The truth is I didn’t drill the holes into the wall (Gosh, someone help the people around me if I did), but everything else, I did install on my own.
Before I secured the frame to the wall I screwed the arms to the frame using the allen-key which was included in the packaging. After that, the frame went up on the wall and was secured by bolts and washers. The frame has 8 holes (Small Guard) so you Engineers can choose which one is the best to secure. I reckon two on the top and two on the bottom which is enough to secure the frame.

Once I had the frame fitted to the wall I added the side panels. This was the easiest process out of the whole installation! So, whilst holding the arms, I started from the bottom to slide them and click them into place. Easy! I did the same with the second side panel.
Next it was the top panel; this was a bit heavier than the side panel (but I don’t think a man would struggle with the weight!)
The last bit was to secure the front panel to the frame.
Standing in freezing cold temperatures and filming some scenes over and over my hands turned blue (I thought my fingers would fall off) as I struggled to hold the front panel – it was a little bit heavier than I thought (for a tiny woman like me). So, we had to repeat this scene a couple of times until I managed to secure the front panel to the frame. The funny thing was, that I dropped the allen-key…Then I dropped the screws… Then I walked away using inappropriate language about the cold weather and wishing the summer weather was still with us. I had a runny nose (very attractive) which I don’t think comes across on the film, but I did successfully manage to install our Easy-Fit Protective Guard and I was very, very proud of myself!  
guard1
Not only did I face my fear, but I faced the camera and I faced the guard. “Woman vs Guard.”
I am delighted to tell you, that the Pump House installation process of the guards is indeed, really easy and even I could manage to put it together, a woman without any previous experience in this industry and also it was really good fun.
On the other side – doing this when really cold and without gloves was difficult in itself because of the risk of frozen fingers and icicles from my nose, so please be aware of this!
A massive respect goes out to all of the Engineers who do this everyday no matter the weather conditions, I think you do a brilliant job! Thumbs up to all of you!

ATLANTA—Jan. X, 2016 – DiversiTech Corp., a leading manufacturer and supplier of HVACR parts and accessories, announced today that it has purchased Pump House, a premier supplier of ancillary HVACR products based in Nottingham, U.K.  The acquisition enables DiversiTech to further expand its European and international customer reach with a well-established organization that brings an expansive range of products and first-class distribution capabilities.  The company also shares DiversiTech’s core values of providing excellent customer service and the best product selection available.

Pump House will retain its name and primary focus on serving the European market. It moves forward, however, with greater product capacity and resource availability under the DiversiTech umbrella.  The acquisition formally solidifies Pump House and DiversiTech’s long-standing partnership, which was created through a joint venture established in 2006.

Pump House sells more than 1,500 products to national and independent distributors, wholesalers and OEMs across five major sectors: air conditioning, refrigeration, boiler, renewables and support systems. Founded in 2001, Pump House has three warehouse facilities in Nottingham, U.K., and serves customers in many European countries, the U.S.A., the Middle East and Australia.

“Bringing Pump House into the DiversiTech family makes perfect sense and is a natural progression based on our long-standing partnership,” said DiversiTech Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Bud Sjogren.  “We see continued opportunity in the European market, and this acquisition assists us in capitalizing on those opportunities. As a result of the merger, both companies will be expanding their product portfolios with the goal of providing our customers a compelling one-stop-shop offering. This is in keeping with our desire to help our many customers simplify the way they work.”

“We are excited to be a part of the DiversiTech family,” said Pump House Managing Director Dave Bass.  “DiversiTech’s depth of resources will enable us to continue our growth while bringing more value and support to our customers than ever before.”

Customers of both companies will continue to receive the same high level of service and delivery they’ve come to expect. They can also continue to place product orders and request technical assistance as they currently do.

The purchase of Pump House follows DiversiTech’s recent acquisition of Cliplight Manufacturing Company and its Super Seal™ family of brands.  DiversiTech has a successful history of growth by acquiring industry recognized brand names and assets, some of which include Wagner® Manufacturing, Specialty Chemical, EcoPad® and The Black Pad®.
