Godwin Pumps Earns South Jersey Top 25 Honors

Company recognized as one of the 25 fastest growing in the region

Company recognized as one of the 25 fastest growing in the region Godwin Pumps, manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime automatic self-priming pump, was recognized by The Philadelphia Business Journal and the Rowan
University–Rohrer College of Business as one of the 25 Fastest Growing Private Companies in South Jersey.

In accepting the award on behalf of his employees, President John Paz said, “Decisiveness brings results. I encourage my people to make decisions-–right or wrong. If we do it right the first time, great. If not, we make it right, learn from it and move on. This is something my mother and father taught me at a very early age, and we’ve done very well by it.”

With a 31.14% increase in revenue from 2006 to 2008, the 23rd-ranked Godwin Pumps was the largest company on the list in both employee size and annual revenue, and also has the greatest business longevity.

“I am proud of our growth; not just in the past three years, but over the past 33 years,” said Paz. “We built Godwin Pumps here in South Jersey from a group of about 10 core people for a period of several years to a worldwide company with nearly 700 employees and over 400 distributor locations worldwide. My goal is and remains to sustain our growth in the years to come—despite the economic outlook—through swift and smart decisions.”
