Xylem News Release
- Groundbreaking for construction of a new 10,000ft2 extension by Xylem at its Godwin Pumps manufacturing facility in Bridgeport, New Jersey, supports continuing growth in the dewatering segment of the business. The additional capacity will meet growing demand for Godwin pumps, including for the new Godwin NC Series introduced in November 2011.
- "We continued to see excellent growth in 2011, expanding both our pump rental and sales business considerably," said Michel Bakhos, head of Xylem's Dewatering Solutions business. "The added shop space in Bridgeport will help us keep up with demand in 2012 and beyond and growing our product offering."
- The building extension is expected to be completed during 2012.
- ITT Corporation acquired the privately-owned Godwin Pumps in 2010. It became a Xylem brand in 2011 following spinoff of the water-related businesses of ITT Corporation into Xylem. From headquarters in White Plains, New York, Xylem has some 12,000 employees worldwide, had 2010 annual revenues of $3.2 billion, and is listed on the New York stock exchange under the company code XYL.
