Be smart, choose Strate!
Cougar pumps represent Strate Pumps in the UK.

Strate have a unique sewage pump system that does not clog up, as the solid debris never comes into contact with the pump impeller.

We currently have a demo unit to explain the simplicity and effectiveness of this sewage pump station.

If you wish to visit our Berkhamsted works, we are more than happy to demonstrate and offer quotations where necessary. We look forward to see you all!

Please contact us on to book a demonstration.

Cougar's recycling work!
I am sure we can all agree that lockdown/ furlough life has been challenging for us all!

Some of our colleagues, decided to set themselves a challenge.

Simon says - "While working from home, I decided to spend my evenings getting a large project done – replacing the decking.

I was really lucky to get all of the recycled materials required delivered on the very day that the builders merchant shut in March!
Over the following six weekends, and with the help of my two sons, we laid 40m2
of decking with composite deck boards made from recycled polyethylene milk bottles and wood chip!

Once my project had been completed, I was able to get back to nature – here’s a picture of a local woodland walk!"
It's competition time again!

Class of Cougar 2020! : Leah Donaldson
"I have been studying an online course in professional Marketing with the guidance of Manchester Metropolitan University.

Being a fast learner, I now feel very confident assigning different marketing techniques to products based on the desired marketing outcome.

One of my exams included planning a whole marketing campaign from start to finish!.

I feel as if I am beginning to put my new skills into place here at Cougar and I'm excited to see where this takes me."

Grill Phil!
“Phil, I’ve recently seen the term “iSolutions” in some marketing material. Are Apple moving into pumps?”

The term is one coined by Grundfos, to describe a new way of thinking about pumping systems.

The “i” is the used in the same fashion to denote intelligence, but after that there is no similarity.
Unfortunately it is a marketing nightmare to get the concept across.

It is much better demonstrated and there are good case studies to show what can be enormous benefits.

Below are Grundfos’ own words.

“Grundfos iSOLUTIONS brings a new era of intelligence to pump systems and water technology with solutions that look beyond individual components and optimise the entire system. Powered by our deep understanding of water, Grundfos iSOLUTIONS utilises intelligent pumps, cloud connectivity and digital services. Together they enable real-time monitoring, remote control, fault prediction and system optimisation to help you reach a new level of performance.”

In short, it is adding brains to the brawn!
