TARMAC trophy

There’s a celebratory mood here at Atlantic Pumps this week after we won the Tarmac Innovation Challenge 2018.

We claimed the much coveted prize with our submission for the next stage of their pump register.   

A prototype model of the idea has already been built and has been tested and Tarmac will now work with us to develop the idea before launching it across its sites. 

The popularity of our Pump Register is ever growing. In addition to recording a sites pump details, the current register provides the user with quicker quoting and hence delivery time if a pump goes down, easier identification of details when new spares are required and the setting up of service reminders if needed. 

We were one of 190 entrants who originally submitted a video of their idea to Tarmac. The entrants were then whittled down to a final 14 with each presenting their idea to a panel of judges at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry. 

Talking about the next step in the development of the Pump Register, Chief Marketing Officer, Bill Noakes said “We are developing innovative ideas that will bring improvements to our customer service offering, improve Tarmac’s asset management and reduce downtime in the industry. We share with Tarmac a belief that collaboration can bring big benefits to both parties. To receive such recognition from a well-known name in the industry is a credit to our energetic and hard-working team here at Atlantic Pumps.”
