Press Release - Europump President Luboš Michlík Outlines Vision and Priorities for European Pump Industry

Europump, the European Pump Association, is proud to have Luboš Michlík as its President, who brings a wealth of experience and a clear vision for the future of the European pump industry. As President, Michlík is committed to advancing Europump's mission of promoting excellence, innovation, and sustainability within the pump sector.

Under Michlík's leadership, Europump is dedicated to enhancing collaboration between industry stakeholders and regulatory bodies to ensure the development and implementation of robust standards and directives. The association remains actively engaged in important initiatives related to various applicable directives, including the Eco-Design Directive, the Energy Labelling Directive, the Machinery Directive, and the Drinking Water Directive, each of which will have a significant impact on the pump sector.

Another key topic of interest for both the Technical and Standards Commissions within Europump is the restriction in use of PFAS materials (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). Given their presence in a wide variety of products associated with pump installations, such as sealings, bearings, cable sheaths, coatings, pump inserts and membranes, any restriction must be fully considered, and possible alternatives identified, before any changes come into force.

"As President of Europump, my primary focus is to champion the interests of the European pump industry and drive positive change that benefits both our members and society as a whole," says Luboš Michlík. "We are committed to upholding the highest standards of quality, safety, and environmental responsibility across all aspects of our industry."

Europump is pleased to announce the launch of its brand-new website ( designed to provide members and stakeholders with easy access to information, resources, and industry updates. The website serves as a central hub for news, publications, technical guidance, and events, reinforcing Europump's commitment to transparency and communication.

In line with its commitment to fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange, Europump is excited to stage its upcoming Annual Meeting in Windsor, UK, from 22nd-24th May this year. Hosted by the British Pump Manufacturers’ Association (BPMA), the event will bring together industry leaders, experts, and stakeholders to discuss key challenges, opportunities, and emerging trends shaping the future of the European pump industry. Further information including details on the programme of talks and presentations can be found on the dedicated event website -

"We are delighted to invite our members and partners to join us for the Europump Annual Meeting in Windsor, where we will engage in constructive dialogue and exchange ideas to drive innovation and progress within our industry," adds Michlík.

As Europump continues its complex work under Michlík's leadership, assisted by the Chairs and members of the various commissions – Standards, Technical, Marketing and SME - the association remains steadfast in its dedication to advancing the interests and priorities of the European pump industry, while promoting sustainability, innovation, and excellence across all aspects of its work.
