Godwin Pumps, manufacturer of the popular Dri-Prime automatic self-priming, dry-running pump, has changed its legal name to Xylem Dewatering Solutions, effective Jan. 1.
“Godwin will remain the brand name for the Dri-Prime series of pumps,” said Michel Bakhos, president of Xylem Dewatering Solutions. “The change in company name reflects our continued efforts to provide customers a broader product range, value-added services and integrated solutions from a growing branch footprint. We are known in the industry for the highest standard of professionalism, support and response. Our commitment is to build on this foundation and keep growing the offering of Dri-Prime pumps and Flygt submersible pumps, as well as launching new products and services.”
Godwin, now a brand of Xylem, maintains a fleet of more than 6,000 portable rental pumps and 3,200 pieces of related equipment for use in dewatering in construction, mining and quarrying, drinking water supply and wastewater bypasses in municipal, industrial and environmental markets.
Xylem is based in White Plains, N.Y., with 2010 annual revenues of $3.2 billion.
