GWI cited the following three reasons for Paques’ nomination in the “Water Technology Company of the Year" category:
“We are delighted to be nominated in this prestigious industry award. We hope that our activities and achievements form an inspiring story for the industry and we are encouraged by the positive response it is generating,” said Rob Heim, managing director of Paques.
The awards will be presented by Kofi Annan, former secretary general of the United Nations, at a special ceremony to be held in Berlin, on April 18 in conjunction with the Global Water Summit 2011: Focusing on Performance.
