PIA Industry Innovation Award 2017 – Entries close 30 Sept 2017
Your opportunity to showcase your company’s ingenuity
The future prosperity of the Australian Pump Industries is dependent on the ability of PIA members to introduce innovation that meets the needs of Australian and Regional pump users.
