The world famous Warman slurry pump originally designed and manufactured in Australia, has recently received a royal welcome by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
A scale model of the world famous Warman slurry pump was shown to Her Majesty on a visit to the Weir Advanced Research Centre (WARC) at the University of Strathclyde’s Technology and Innovation Centre in Glasgow, Scotland.
Warman slurry pumps have been manufactured around the world since 1938. The Minerals Division of The Weir Group, who now owns the Warman brand, is the global market leader in slurry pumps used for minerals processing: the method by which valuable minerals are extracted from ore bodies.
The Queen was also shown a scale model of a minerals processing plant, and learned of Weir’s global operations empire, which stretches over more than seventy countries and includes more than 200 manufacturing and service centres.
Commenting on the visit, Dean Jenkins, Divisional Managing Director of Weir Minerals said, “It is a great honour to be able to share Weir and Warman’s story with Her Majesty, and for her to take such an interest in our firm’s long-standing commitment to developing innovative solutions, aimed at making our customers more productive and maintaining our market leadership.
