Xylem Inc., formerly known as Godwin Pumps, has broken ground on a 10,000-square-foot extension of its manufacturing facility in Bridgeport, N.J., to support continuing growth for its dewatering business. The Bridgeport facility is a manufacturing plant for Godwin pumps.
The additional capacity will be used to meet growing demand for the Godwin line, including the new Godwin Dri-Prime NC Series introduced in November. The NC Series is a portable, diesel-driven dewatering pump to include Flygt N-technology.
“We continued to see excellent growth in 2011, expanding both our pump rental and sales business considerably,” said Michel Bakhos, president of Xylem’s Dewatering Solutions business. “To keep up with demand in 2012 and beyond, we are adding shop space at the main manufacturing facility in Bridgeport. Growing our product offering and increasing manufacturing capabilities is essential in ensuring unequaled customer support and service.”The company expects to complete the building extension before the end of 2012.
