SSP Pumps, a manufacturer of centrifugal pumps and systems, has appointed Ian Burrows to take up the position of Business Development Manager for major business.

The announcement comes following a recent double award win for SPP at the 2014 Pump industry Awards, and demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing the best solutions to customers, when and where it really matters. The result is finely-tuned, bespoke-engineered units that precisely meet the performance specifications each project requires.

Ian Burrows brings with him a track record of 30 years in the pumping industry and experience of managing business development programmes in the UK and Europe, and Russia. His key expertise is in the oil & gas and offshore sectors.

At SPP, Ian will be responsible for expanding the company’s portfolio of projects in the oil & gas markets. He comments, “I am excited to be joining the team at SPP. It is a company focused on providing the best quality, most efficient pumping solutions to customers, and it has an excellent reputation in the offshore business already for the supply of Fire and Seawater Lift pumps – I’m sure it will be an exciting challenge to broaden SPP’s scope and activity. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Bob Tichband, SPP Sales Director, said, “I’d like to welcome Ian to SPP. As part of our commitment to providing the very best services and solutions to customers, we need to recruit the best people – and Ian certainly fits this bill. We wish him a long and prosperous journey with SPP.”
