Big congratulations again to Paul George of Alsco Motueka for winning the fabulous 2016 Filterfab Award, 2017 is going to be a wonderful year for you Paul, we are so pleased you battled the weather and travel upsets to make it in the end. Also congratulations to Trish from Sudserella and Daniel from La Nuova for their entries, I think many were please not to have to judge such a tough competition.

The Executive Committee would like to welcome to Patrick Girvan (Managing Director) from Bowe, as our new Supplier Rep – and extend a big thanks and acknowledgement for all Stacey’s hard work over the time he held this position. Although he is stepping down he will still be available if and when he is needed.
