Company history

Alex Holmes has over 20 years experience in the pump industry. Following in the footsteps of his father John Holmes who founded Powerwise Limited, Alex first started in the industry by building pumps on the shop floor of Powerwise as a YTS trainee in the mid eighties. After University Alex began employment in Powerwise as a contracts engineer processing customer orders from start to finish. Working on single pump orders right through to large module systems enhanced Alex’s all round knowlege and understanding of the pump industry. Moving on to sales, pumps selection and quoting became second nature.
