Celebrated on the 8 March each year, International Women’s Day is a special opportunity to shine the spotlight on women working in our industry, highlighting their unique experiences and expertise, and what led them on this career path.

As the European Committee of Manufacturers of Compressors, Vacuum Technology, Pneumatic Tools, Air Treatment Equipment and Condensate Treatment Equipment, our members are national associations representing more than 200 manufacturers in 8 EU Member States, in Switzerland and in Turkey. The European market turnover for the business represented exceeds Euro20 billion.

Speaking on behalf of our members in European and international forums regarding the harmonisation of technical, normative, and legislative developments in the field of compressors, vacuum pumps, pneumatic tools, and allied equipment, we see that our industry is growing and forever evolving.

This presents more opportunities for women, from those looking to develop their careers further and to those who are just starting out, to take advantage of and take an active role in.

To celebrate International Women’s Day and to showcase the opportunities in our sector, we are delighted to share with you the story of Vanda Jones, Executive Director for the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS), highlighting her key role and motivation in shaping our industry.
