Bridgeport, NJ, US – (December 18, 2012) – Xylem, a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world's most challenging water issues, distributed much-needed supplies to Hurricane Sandy victims in Northern New Jersey.
Two Xylem sales representatives, Mark Michael and Pat Witts, worked tirelessly around the clock with the rest of Godwin's Northeast branches to ensure pumps were delivered to affected cities up and down the east coast to help relieve flooded areas so families had hope to resume to some type of normalcy.
In addition to working around the clock dispatching, delivering, setting up, and servicing our pumps, employees responded to Mark and Pat's call for donations to purchase much-needed supplies for local Northern New Jersey residents.
To date, our employees in the US and UK donated $9,545.00 USD, prior to Xylem's double match initiative. Xylem joined the American Red Cross to provide emergency funds, and Xylem activated a double match for employee contributions.

White Plains, N.Y.– October 26, 2012 – Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world's most challenging water issues, announced today that it has acquired privately held Heartland Pump Rental and Sales, Inc. The actual terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Heartland Pump, headquartered in Carterville, Illinois, has been a strong business partner with Godwin in dewatering pump rental, services and systems design since 1995; Godwin is part of the Xylem portfolio.
"We've identified dewatering as a strategic growth market for us, building on our existing capabilities in emergency water removal, bypass, drainage and industrial applications," said Gretchen McClain, President and Chief Executive Officer of Xylem.

Godwin, a Xylem brand, supports Hurricane Isaac Relief Efforts
Bridgeport, NJ, US – (September 18, 2012) – Godwin, a Xylem brand, continues to support emergency relief efforts through the south after Hurricane Isaac.
In the same areas hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, parishes throughout New Orleans and Baton Rouge were experiencing flooding and power outages from Hurricane Isaac. Pump stations were being used at length because of the outages, and needed backup. Godwin, in conjunction with distributor Better Pumps & Solutions, deployed a total of 167 pumps.
Godwin deployed six-inch pumps from branches in Houston, TX, San Antonio, TX, Jacksonville, FL, Lakeland, FL, Atlanta, GA, Bridgeport, NJ, and Evanston, WY. Godwin Midwest District Manager Rob Lamm traveled to Louisiana to assist Better Pumps & Solutions and work with contractors.
John Bienvenu of Better Pumps & Solutions said, "There were five coastal parishes, among others, affected by Hurricane Isaac. Some have had recent levee improvements that helped prevent flooding. Others, in lower lying areas, experienced greater floods. Those not greatly affected by flooding still suffered large power outages."
Better Pumps & Solutions has locations in both New Orleans and Baton Rouge, and were at the forefront of hurricane relief in the area.
In Mississippi, flooding wasn't too dramatic during the storm, but the remnants of Hurricane Isaac still caused problems for local communities. Godwin Eastern District Manager Will Buddin started receiving calls on Saturday before Labor Day that the Percy Quin dam and levee were in jeopardy. Officials wanted to build an emergency spillway. The dam level needed to drop to reduce the threat of cracking, and also in order to begin work on the emergency spillway.
Said Buddin, "The dam is fed by Lake Tangipahoa, which we estimated to be a 700-900-acre lake. That's a lot of water that would go downstream toward Louisiana." Buddin boarded a plane early Labor Day morning to assist distributor Hydra Service with coordination efforts, calculations, and recommendations for the contractors on-site.
Five 12-inch DPC300 Godwin Dri-Prime pumps and four 8-inch CD225M Dri-Prime pumps were deployed from Hydra Service. " Everyone was working to get the area under control as quickly as possible with contractors and the Army Corp of Engineers."
The level dropped successfully in two days, and now work has begun to install the emergency spillway. This will prevent such emergencies in the future. The spillway will regulate excess flow in an emergency or torrential downpour and take pressure off the dam.
