Applying health and safety is the right thing to do!

Amalgamated Pumping Supplies has implemented a management system in the workplace to sustain employee wellbeing, minimize risks to the bare minimum and to effectively protect and control the utilization of our resources.
Safety, health and environmental governance are acknowledged as being fundamental to business strategies to enhance profitability. Furthermore the manifestation thereof is essential in supporting the value of “being a model corporate citizen” and “valuing its people and their diversity”.
