Land Rover enthusiasts descended on Colwyn Bay this September to take part in the Mark Water Pump’s Land Rover Day, which took place at the company’s manufacturing and testing centre in Wales. Sunny weather and a wide range of Land Rover machinery on show ensured an enjoyable day, with attendees treated to refreshments, presentations and a factory tour.

Visitors were able to gain a first-hand glimpse at how Mark Water Pumps produces OE quality Pro Flow water pumps to support the Land Rover range. With the last Land Rover Defender rolling off the production line in January, the event marked the many years of product support provided by Mark Water Pumps for the model. A recent back catalogue check confirmed that Mark Water Pumps can provide water pumps to cover 43 years of the Defender’s 68 year history, which allows the company to offer a unique perspective on these vehicles. Mark Water Pumps even produced the OE water pump for the Defender between 1990 and 2006.

The Land Rover Day factory tour centred on Mark Water Pump’s in-house manufacturing and testing capabilities, with attendees viewing the aluminium die casting process and the wide range of automotive component testing machinery available on-site. An integrated approach and a focus on OE quality ensures a truly premium product, allowing customers to select an equivalent part to perfectly suit their vehicle.

Bernard Morris, North Wales and Shropshire Area Officer for the Land Rover Series 2 Club Ltd, commented during the event: “I want to say thank you to David and the Mark Water Pump’s team for a really engaging Land Rover day. It is clear to see the passion within Mark Water Pumps for Land Rover, and the focus on providing quality components for these vehicles. Furthermore, its nice to know that the Land Rover community will continue to have access to quality aftermarket parts from a trusted source.”

David Lewis, Director at Mark Water Pumps added: “As a Defender owner myself, I understand the love that enthusiasts have for their Land Rovers. We have been supporting Land Rover from an OE and aftermarket standpoint for decades, so the Land Rover day was a good chance for us to transmit some of the expertise gained to the Land Rover community. As a business, we will be continuing the water pump support we offer for the model, so more and more of these vehicles can stay on the road.”
