It’s our vision to improve quality of life for our community, while safeguarding the sustainability of our most precious resource, water.
Giving back to the community through our corporate social responsibility program enables us to make a significantly positive impact outside of the workplace.
We wholeheartedly embrace working together with our partners, not-for-profits, charities and volunteers to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life for our fellow community members.
World Water Day
It’s unacceptable that 663 million people worldwide are living without a supply of water close to home and we aim to do what we can to reduce that figure within our lifetimes. This is why we support World Water Day, an initiative set up by the United Nations in collaboration with governments and partners from around the world. World Water Day is held on March 22nd each year.
In 2017, we decided to make an extra special effort to commemorate it. As part of our activities, we launched both an external campaign for building awareness as well as an internal competition for our staff members. We asked our staff to develop ideas of how we can waste less water in-house. We were amazed at the entries we received and how quickly our team were willing to make a difference.

A week after our World Water Day competition winners were announced, awarded production staff were quick to setup a creative water saving initiative - a small test tank on a looped filtration system resulting in recycled water being utilised for hydrostatic testing.
For less than $100 and under 3 hours we built the tank from spare parts and old stock. The system is now operating on a regular basis primarily testing hot water circulators along with other smaller pumping packages. It is estimated we have saved 700 litres of water since the initiative was implemented. Since then many more water saving ideas have been realized.
Allied Pumps will continue to focus on initiatives and activities that support our vision to safeguard the future by increasing the availability of safe water and encouraging its conservation. We welcome any feedback in the hopes of supporting further charities for water support. If you have something in mind please contact us here.
The Rapid Relief Team (RRT) offers quality catering assistance to charitable and government organisations confronting some of humankind’s greatest challenges, including natural disasters, heart disease, cancer research and the plight of the homeless. RRT is a global charitable organisation with teams in Australia, the United Kingdom, North and South America, the Caribbean, Canada, New Zealand and Europe, committed to supporting those in need. The RRT believes in expressing the principles of care and compassion and express these values while serving those in need with quality food and refreshments.
Working with RRT in a volunteer capacity means the work is varied. For instance here in Perth, some of the assistance that Allied Pumps team members have been involved with, include;
> Regularly providing a breakfast for the homeless at the UCW Tranby Mission homeless shelter in Northbridge.
> Provide labour and refreshments at the Ride to Conquer Cancer fundraising event, benefiting the Harry Perkins institute of Medical Research.
> Provide meals and refreshments to emergency services and volunteer support for the Salvation Army during the devastating Parkerville Bushfires in January 2014.
Allied Pumps members involved with supporting RRT spoke of it as moving to be involved in these events and witness firsthand the stories of survival and the challenges that persons face on a daily basis. But above all the support for RRT stems from the desire to be able to provide some relief, compassion and encouragement to those who are in need.
