Company will expand rental options throughout Europe
Xylem Inc. is expanding its dewatering pump rental offering across Europe to cater for a growing demand within the construction, municipal, mining and industrial sectors. Xylem will increase its bank of surface mounted and submersible pumps through a rental branch rollout scheduled over the coming years including refurbishment of existing premises, brand new locations and via selective acquisitions.
According to Xylem, it is experiencing a growing need within the construction industry for expert providers of complete, turnkey dewatering solutions as well as for dewatering pumps to rent.
“We have noticed an increased demand within the industry for dewatering services to be supplied as a complete package including pump and water treatment systems, engineering expertise and project management,” said Andrew Jones, head of Xylem’s dewatering business. “This limits customers’ administration and management efforts and provides peace of mind as they are contracting dewatering experts to take care of the job.”
“While construction industry businesses may have some of the technical expertise in-house that is required to manage and operate dewatering projects, more limited budgets due to challenging economic conditions, mean that they do not wish to make significant investments in equipment purchases that may just be required for a one-off project,” continued Jones.
Xylem’s rental service also eliminates the need for the storage and maintenance of dewatering equipment.
