Xylem Breaks Ground on Godwin Pumps Manufacturing Facility Expansion

Company readies for continued dewatering growth

Xylem Inc., a global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, has broken ground on a 10,000-sq-ft extension of its manufacturing facility in Bridgeport, N.J., to support continuing growth in the dewatering segment.

The Bridgeport facility is a manufacturing plant for Godwin pumps, a global brand of automatic self-priming portable pumps used in the growing markets for drainage pump rental, services and sales for the global industrial, construction, mining, municipal, oil and gas segments. 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.

"We continued to see excellent growth in 2011, expanding both our pump rental and sales business considerably," Michel Bakhos, Xylem Dewatering Solutions, said. "To keep up with demand in 2012 and beyond, we are adding shop space at the main manufacturing facility in Bridgeport."

The building extension is expected to be completed during 2012.
