Located in the most arid place on the planet - the Atacama Desert in Chile - Neptuno Pumps understands the importance of the efficient use of resources. Established in 1972, it was the first manufacturer of pumps in the world to develop highly reliable, energy efficient equipment, 100% customized to client requirements by the use of industry 4.0 technology such as computer simulations, 3D printing and advanced manufacturing. However, the company was convinced that this was not enough to fight climate change and the over-exploitation of natural resources. This is why it developed the first circular economy model in the pump industry at the global level, reusing and recycling material from its old equipment and scrap, providing innovative, efficient and sustainable solutions by reusing, recycling and re-manufacturing.
Neptuno Pumps is the only manufacturer of pumps in the world that has won the "Innovation of the Year" prize three times and also won the “Manufacturer of the Year” at the prestigious Pump Industry Awards in Oxford, England. In addition, as a pioneer of the circular economy, Neptuno Pumps is the first company in Latin America to be recognised as a Runner Up at the awards known as The Circulars at the World Economic Forum, held in Davos. It is currently considered one of the 300 most sustainable solutions in the world in the Global Opportunity Explorer by Sustainia of the UN SDGs, fulfilling SDG 9, 12 and 13.
