    About 100 people worked for nearly eight hours to form the words “Coimbatore Pump City” with pumps on Thursday at VOC Grounds here.

    According to Kanishka Arumugam, director of Ekki Pumps and Deccan Pumps, about 10 pump manufacturers, including leading brands and smaller players, supplied pumps for the formation. These include agriculture, domestic, and industrial pumps.

    “Coimbatore is making pumps for more than 50 years now and the next generation needs to focus on innovation. The objective of the programme is to showcase that Coimbatore is a leading manufacturer and supplier of pumpsets. In the recent years, the range of pumpsets made here is also widening,” he said.

    “The brand made in Coimbatore for pumps should become popular,” he added.

    S. Prasanna Krishna, Young Indians (Yi) chair, Coimbatore, said the city had over 200 pumpset manufacturers and only Rajkot and Ahmedabad were the other major pumpset making hubs in the country. The global market size for pumps was estimated to be 45 billion $ and India’s market size was ₹ 10,000 crore. The manufacturers here catered to over 40 % of the country’s demand.

    “A couple of leading multi-national brands also have presence in Coimbatore. We should aspire more for the next decade and become a pioneer city to manufacture advanced pumping systems,” Mr. Arumugam added.
