Flowserve expands pump manufacturing in India

Flowserve will add a third facility to its Coimbatore campus that will produce high-energy pumps used in nuclear and fossil fuel power plants. The Flowserve Coimbatore campus already has two manufacturing facilities that produce a wide range of industrial and engineered pumps.

The new facility should be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012.

“The addition of this third manufacturing facility allows Flowserve to expand our Coimbatore product portfolio to include a broader range of engineered pumps,” explained Tom Ferguson, president, Flowserve Flow Solutions Group.

“This key strategic initiative will give Flowserve a local source for high-energy pumps and allow us to participate in the rapid growth in both the nuclear and fossil fuel power generation markets in India,” added Ferguson.
