“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’s Dewatering Solutions business. “Growing our product offering and increasing manufacturing capabilities is essential in ensuring unequaled customer support and service.”

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. It is the first portable, diesel-driven dewatering pump to include Flygt N-technology, which delivers clog-free hydraulics and enables sustained high-efficiency pumping. The building extension is expected to be completed during 2012.
