The additional capacity will be used to meet growing demand for Godwin pumps, including the new Godwin Dri- Prime NC Series introduced in November 2011. The Godwin Dri-Prime NC Series is the first portable, diesel-driven dewatering pump to include the Flygt N-technology which delivers clog-free hydraulics and enables sustained high-efficiency pumping.
“We continued to see excellent growth in 2011, expanding both our pump rental and sales business considerably. To keep up with demand in 2012 and beyond, we are adding shop space at the main manufacturing facility in Bridgeport,” said Michel Bakhos, head of Xylem Inc’s Dewatering Solutions business.
The building extension is expected to be completed during 2012.
