Godwin Pumps Now Available with Tier 4 Technology

2014/09/23

BRIDGEPORT, New JerseySeptember 22, 2014 – Xylem, a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world's most challenging water issues, today announced that its Godwin range of powerful diesel pumps is now available with Tier 4 engines, the most up-to-date engine technology available. The new Tier 4 engines in Godwin pumps reduce air pollution by minimizing particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), as well as delivering enhanced engine control and reduced engine noise.

Tier 4 engines are now required under the United States' Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Clean Air Act: emissions standards for diesel engines. Manufacturers are currently required to abide by Final Tier 4 regulations for 25-74 horsepower engines.

"We have worked closely with engine manufacturers to package this new technology within our sale and rental equipment. Godwin is committed to providing the best pumps in the industry and to helping customers understand the new requirements and the impact these changes will have on their businesses," said, Mike Ramos, Vice President & Director of Operations and Engineering for Xylem’s Godwin brand. "While these standards will demand some adjustment across the industry, we are committed to guiding our customers through the transition and helping them understand the operation and application of these advanced engines within dewatering pumps in the field. This year we have added nearly 300 Interim Tier 4 and Final Tier 4 engines to our rental fleet, with plans to add hundreds more of Tier 4-equipped pumps in 2015. As always, we are committed to supporting our customers to solve their toughest dewatering challenges.

"The new diesel engines are just one of the many technological advancements Godwin has introduced over the last year. For example, our new Field Smart Technology works with Godwin’s PrimeGuard pump controller, enabling customers to constantly monitor and control equipment remotely and ensure optimum efficiency," concluded Mike.

In order to support customers’ budget planning, Xylem is communicating the additional costs associated with these updated Tier 4 diesel engines while there are still options available, before regulations require the entire HP range to be upgraded to Final Tier 4. Final Tier 4 diesel engine pricing in the 25-74 horsepower range will increase the cost of Godwin four inch and six inch dewatering pumps by between 25-35 percent. The price increase is mainly due to Final Tier 4 engines having electronic builds instead of the previously used mechanical builds. The inclusion of a diesel particulate filter – which had not been supplied with this horsepower range of engines previously, but is now required by the regulations – also adds to the price change. Over the coming years, larger horsepower engines will also see a price increase as Tier 4 regulations come into effect for pumps in the higher HP range.

Tier 4 diesel engine technology is available within Xylem’s Godwin dewatering pump equipment for sale or rental. Xylem also offers alternative pumping solutions such as Godwin electric driven Dri-Prime or Flygt submersible pumps, and variable frequency drives to meet customers’ varied needs.

Xylem Still Sending Relief and Donations to Areas Hit by Hurricane Sandy

2012/12/20

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. Total employee contributions were last tallied at $22,800 for a total donation through Xylem of $68,500.

Said Anne Denny, CFO of Xylem's dewatering solutions business, said, "Mark and Pat, two of the youngest sales representatives in our New Jersey region, have donated their time after their workday was over to purchase supplies from the donations received and load their trucks. They drove to North Jersey the following day to distribute the supplies and help local branch personnel. Mark and Pat have gone above and beyond as representatives of Godwin."

Xylem acquires Heartland Pump, strengthening company's dewatering solutions portfolio in the United States

2012/10/26

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.  "This acquisition supports our strategy by expanding our footprint in an important region of the United States."

Godwin, a Xylem brand, supports Hurricane Isaac Relief Efforts

2012/09/19

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.

Godwin Pumps Announces New Midwest Branches

2011/09/16

(Bridgeport, New Jersey, USA – September 16, 2011) Godwin Pumps, manufacturer of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming, dry-running pump, is pleased to announce new locations in the Midwest – Indianapolis, IN; Evansville, IN; and Cincinnati, OH.

Godwin’s increased presence in the Midwest aligns with its strategy to enhance its focus on customer service by positioning itself nearer to customer locations. Said Godwin president, Michel Bakhos, “The opening of these three new branches in the heart of the US Midwest exemplifies our commitment to our customers to bring an unequalled service support, to make available timely supply of rental pumps and related equipment, and to enhance pre- and post-sale support.”

Similar to all other Godwin branches across the US, Godwin’s new branches will be equipped with the Godwin product range of surface-mounted diesel Dri-Prime pumps to serve all markets, as well as Flygt’s electric submersible pumps for construction and mine dewatering using the Flygt B, 2000, 2600, 2700 stainless steel and the 5100 abrasive-resistant series.

Planning and business development are moving quickly in the new branches, with sales and service personnel at each location. Said Bakhos, "The opportunity to combine Godwin and Flygt forces at existing locations allows us to get to market faster, through pre-existing channels for both brands. Product offerings obviously complement each other, and we are eager to showcase the operational efficiencies in availability of products, parts and services.”

The alignment and expansion efforts throughout the Midwest are being spearheaded by Godwin’s Midwest Regional Manager, Bob Spinner.

“This is an exciting time for us,” said Spinner. “When it comes to pumping applications, the availability of both Flygt and Godwin in the same location gives us a bigger pump toolbox for the absolutely most efficient solution to every customers’ pumping needs.”

Godwin Pumps

2011/08/30

(Bridgeport, NJ, USA – August 30, 2011) Godwin Pumps, manufacturer of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming, dry-running pump continues to support emergency relief efforts throughout the East Coast after Hurricane Irene.

“We fleeted 85 diesel Dri-Prime pumps last week,” said Grant Salstrom, Godwin’s Chief Operating Officer. “This speaks volumes about the commitment of our people and the collaboration  between our  branches, sales, manufacturing, dispatch, delivery and field mechanics.”

As Irene’s path unfolded throughout the week, Godwin Pumps delivered in excess of 350 Dri-Prime pumps from eight East Coast branches in support of municipal, industrial, and even recreational flood relief applications, including controlling water levels in Citizens Bank Park – home of the Philadelphia Phillies.

“Our goal was keeping our customers above water,” said Salstrom. “So much so that we skipped painting the pumps our signature orange color in an effort to get them where they needed to be before they were needed. I’m sure the Phillies didn’t care if it wasn’t orange, as long as the bullpen stayed dry.”

Godwin also rented dozens of portable diesel generators.

“It’s one thing to say you’re an emergency response company. It’s another thing to take the calls, build the pumps load, deliver and set equipment up at all hours of the night, in all sorts of conditions. Responsiveness is in the DNA of Godwin employees,” said Salstrom.

“With so much flooding left to control, our work on Hurricane Irene is not yet complete. However, I am proud of the effort that our team put forth.”

Flygt and Godwin Support Recovery Efforts at North River Wastewater Treatment Plant

2011/07/28

(Bridgeport, New Jersey, USA – July 28, 2011) Godwin Pumps, manufacturer of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming, dry-running pump, has been mobilizing pipe and crew to aid in the efforts at the North River Wastewater Treatment Plant following a fire there last week.

Five pump engines caught fire in the machine room at the treatment plant in Harlem last Wednesday. The 75-foot lift station fire had caused sewage to enter watersheds and attached beaches. The total required capacity of the facility is about 120 MGD in dry-weather conditions. The two remaining engines that drive the main sewage pumps have been supplemented with six Flygt electric submersible sewage pumps, ranging from 150 hp to 240 hp, to alleviate the temporary overflow conditions. The Flygt pumps were supplied from Cincinnati and Chicago.

Godwin Pumps is supporting the job with piping and engineering. Temporary piping was shipped to the treatment plant, including over 2,000 feet of 18" pipe and 6,000 feet of 24" pipe. Several pipe fusion machines are on-site, with technicians operating them around the clock in order to improve the situation as quickly as possible.

(Bridgeport, NJ, USA – April 19, 2011) Godwin Pumps, manufacturer of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming, dry-running pump, experienced minor flooding early Sunday, April 17th at its world headquarters in Bridgeport, NJ.

Floodwaters did not make their way into the buildings, but reached part of an equipment yard and employee parking areas. There was no effect on pump deliveries or the manufacturing operations. Godwin Pumps will work with its insurance adjuster to assess any damage.

“One of our drivers returning from a delivery around 2 AM on Sunday, noticed that flood waters were rising.” said Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager Mike Delzingaro. “Our know how and expertise in helping customers in similar emergency situations was a great asset in shaping our quick internal response. As a precaution, we called in a team of employees on Sunday morning to move equipment to higher ground. We also drained fuel and lubricants from pumps and vehicles risking to take on water, to prevent any environmental impact.”

Bridgeport Branch Manager Jack Farrell added, “We are pleased that the quick response by our employees allowed us to make all deliveries on time, throughout the weekend. Pump production resumed as scheduled on Monday morning, with the only inconvenience that some employees had to park across the street.”

Godwin Pumps

2010/06/15

(Gloucestershire, United Kingdom — 15 June 2010) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, SLD Pumps and Power, Godwin's exclusive distributor in the United Kingdom for diesel Dri-Prime pumps, are preparing to share Stand M16 at Hillhead 2010 in Hillhead Quarry from 22 – 24 June.

Celebrating 40 years of production of its Dri-Prime fully automatic priming pump line, Godwin Pumps looks to debut the newest addition to the Dri-Prime range, the model HL260M pump. Capable of flow rates to 1,081 m3/h (4,760 GPM) and heads to 150 m (500 ft), the 250 mm x 200 mm (10 in x 8 in) HL260M is a single-stage, automatic priming centrifugal pump with solids handling capability to 50 mm (2 in) in diameter.

"The single-stage impeller design, close coupling, solids handling capability and Dri-Prime priming system combine to provide a very unique offering for portable pumps generating discharge heads to 150 metres (500 ft)," said Godwin president, John M. Paz. "The industry is trending towards larger pumps and our engineering team is dedicated to developing the most reliable range of high lift pumps on the market."

Godwin Pumps will also celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Dri-Prime pump. What began as a simplistic venturi air priming system – popular because it had no moving parts and required very little maintenance – has remained at the forefront of the pumping industry through engineering expertise and market-leading performance.

"Over the past 25 years, more than 20 models were introduced. Our development team is constantly embracing technology and engineering larger volume and higher head pumps," said Godwin Pumps President, John M. Paz. "Certainly, we have led the market in this regard."

Godwin's dominance in the worldwide portable pump rental market is also due in part to its 40-year relationship with SLD Pumps and Power.

In 1968, the first Dri-Prime prototype was created by Godwin's UK-based development team. Over the next two years, the development team engineered the pump for production, and in 1970 the first DPC6 and MC3 Dri-Prime pumps rolled off the assembly line and were sold to SLD. In 1975, SLD obtained the exclusive distribution rights to sell & rent Dri-Prime pumps in the UK.

"With over fifty years' experience supplying the quarry and mining industries we have the ability to provide rental and sales solutions for all pumping requirements whether large or small. Our services are backed up and supported by our unrivalled national depot network," said SLD's International Sales and Marketing Director, Florian Rodrigues. "We provide instant solutions for pumping and power generation requirements. All of these skills and expertise are available genuinely in-house and from one supplier."

In addition to the Godwin Pumps it offers for sale and hire, SLD will feature its 80 kW SDMO R110-C2 generator, and the 7.2 kW SDMO R10C Power Box on Stand M16 at Hillhead.

2010/04/20

(Munich, Germany — 19 April 2010) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime automatic self-priming pump, announced the opening of a new Distribution Centre at its corporate headquarters in southern New Jersey (US) at Bauma 2010 in Hall A6, Stand 406 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre from 19 – 25 April.

In 2009, Godwin Pumps constructed a 4,645 square m (50,000 square ft) Distribution Centre in the heart of its corporate headquarters in Bridgeport, New Jersey. Currently home to Godwin's US-based Accounts Payable Department, Electrical Department, Training Department, and Shipping and Receiving, this building also houses a majority of Godwin's $12 million (USD) spare parts inventory to support its North American fleet of over 6,000 portable rental pumps and 3,200 pieces of related rental equipment, as well as customer-owned pumps and equipment.

"We had several needs that we wanted to address. One of the needs was the ability to house more inventory – and a complete line of inventory – in one building, to increase our efficiencies and maximise our ability to fulfil customer, distributor and [company-owned store] orders," said Godwin Pumps Chief Operating Officer, Grant Salstrom.

The Godwin Pumps spare parts inventory is a key component to the company's ability to service its customers. The spare parts inventory includes replacement parts for all of Godwin's diesel-driven
Dri-Prime centrifugal pumps, Sub-Prime electric submersible pumps, Heidra hydraulic submersible pumps, and Wet-Prime contractor dewatering pumps. In addition, all spare parts for Godwin Lights portable diesel light towers and Godwin Power portable diesel generators are also housed in the Distribution Centre. As a result, Godwin service vehicles are able to be stocked with a majority of the spare parts needed to service any piece of equipment for use in any one particular region. The availability of spare parts inventory allows the company to keep its customers operational with minimal downtime attributed to repair only, and not to spare parts unavailability.

In response to the growing need for more electric-driven equipment, the construction of the Distribution Centre also permitted Godwin Pumps to allot more space to its Electrical Department.

"Productivity has jumped up immensely," said Electrical Shop Supervisor, Sam Susnick. "In our old facility, we had two two-ton swivelling cranes that were shared by ten repair technicians. Now, each repair bay has its own two-ton crane. In addition, we have a ten-ton overhead crane that allows us to quickly manoeuvre larger equipment. Now, I can get products out within one day, as opposed to three."

In addition to better servicing its internal and external customer base, Godwin used this new construction initiative to take advantage of "greener" inventory transportation equipment, including electric-driven forklifts and electric-driven parts pickers and to maximise shelf space based on the size of its inventory components. While these types of accommodations are more environmentally-friendly, they have also afforded Godwin Pumps the opportunity to work more safely, which is high on the company's priority list.

The new Distribution Centre also features four loading docks for inbound and outbound shipments, enabling the company to receive and deploy equipment with far greater efficiency than the previous single bay it had utilised.

"For over 30 years, we've made a promise to our customers: provide the best service, with great pumps and great people. The construction and utilisation of this building makes keeping that promise a bit easier," said Salstrom.

Godwin Pumps

2010/04/16

(Munich, Germany — 19 April 2010) Godwin Pumps is celebrating 40 years of production of its Dri-Prime® fully automatic priming pump line. What began as a simplistic venturi air priming system – popular because it had no moving parts and required very little maintenance – has remained at the forefront of the pumping industry through engineering expertise and market-leading performance.

The Dri-Prime pump is an automatic priming centrifugal pump capable of flows to 5,385 m3/hr (23,700 GPM), heads to 188 m (615 ft), and solids-handling to 125 mm (5 in) in diameter. Available in sizes from 50 mm to 600 mm (2-in to 24-in), the Dri-Prime line provides suction lift capability to 8.5 m (28 ft) and continuous uninterrupted operation, even during intermittent dry suction conditions. In addition, its dry running, double high-pressure oil bath mechanical seal with abrasion-resistant solid silicon carbide faces enable the pump to run indefinitely without the risk of overheating or failure.

Since its inception, the Dri-Prime pump has advanced through many stages. The first generation rolled off the production line in 1970 and included the DPC and MC models. In 1980, the original designs were reengineered and a second generation was produced that carried the model names CD for "Contractors Dewatering," and HL for "High Lift." The second generation was touted as an "up-market" machine featuring better materials of construction and a new "close coupled" design. The close coupling allowed the pump shaft to directly mount to the engine flywheel. This new design eliminated shaft misalignment previously associated with rental units being abused in the field, and provided more reliability for portable pumps. The third and current generation was released in 1985 as the CD-M and HL-M models. The M, which stands for "oil bath mechanical seal," was yet another advancement in pump technology. These pumps feature an oil bath mechanical seal mounted behind the impeller. This design limits abrasion by protecting the seal's working parts from coming into contact with the liquid being pumped, and allows for dry-running without overheating or failure. Since 1985, the CD-M and HL-M design improvements have stood the test of time.

"Over the past 25 years, more than 20 models were introduced. Our development team is constantly embracing technology and engineering larger volume and higher head pumps," said Godwin Pumps President, John M. Paz. "Certainly, we have led the market in this regard."

As a company, Godwin Pumps has experienced significant expansion throughout the 40 year period since the Dri-Primes release. In Quenington, UK, the business had a humble start around 1865 as a family-owned house-building company. Over the course of three decades, the company transitioned into well boring and pipe laying, and in 1886, under the direction of Harold Joynes Godwin, began building pumps to support its work. The company carried on under Godwin until the 1960s, when it was sold to the John James Group of Bristol.

"At this time Jack Parker, Managing Director, issued an edict to David Saunders, Technical Director, to begin work on a fully automatic priming system, the foundation of what would later become the patented Godwin Dri-Prime pump," said Paz.

In 1968, the first prototype was created by Saunders and his development team. They fitted the priming system to a T6/HR2 pump. Over the next two years, the development team engineered the pump for production and in 1970 the first DPC6 and MC3 Dri-Prime pumps rolled off the assembly line and were sold to Scottish Land Development (SLD). In 1975, SLD obtained the exclusive distribution rights to rent Dri-Prime pumps in the UK.

At the same time, John Paz, Sr. and two of his brothers began their entrepreneurial endeavours in the United States. In 1956, Paz Brothers, a heavy-equipment construction company, was formed. Throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s, Paz Brothers Inc. took on work in the New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania region that required pumps for jobsite dewatering. Frustrated with the reliability of manual priming pumps used on these jobs, Paz, Sr. set out to find a better pump.

Intrigued by an alternative to manual primers, Paz Sr. and his son John Michael traveled to England in 1976 to tour the Godwin Dri-Prime manufacturing facility. The two men returned to the United States with exclusive North American distribution rights for the Dri-Prime pump. In October of 1976, Paz, Sr. asked John Michael, then in college, to run the pump rental company out of the Paz Brothers offices in Bridgeport, NJ. The new company was given the name Godwin Pumps of America, Inc. and began importing complete Dri-Prime pumps from the Quenington factory.

In 1977, the first 18 Dri-Prime pumps arrived at Godwin Pumps of America's facility in Bridgeport, New Jersey, US. At the same time, the Dri-Prime factory in Quenington was purchased by the Wolseley Group.

By 1980, Godwin Pumps of America was utilizing the Dri-Prime's automatic priming feature to lay the foundation for the pump rental market in the United States. While business in America was growing, the UK factory suffered a serious setback. In May of 1980, the factory burned down. Led by Parker, the resilient employees at H.J Godwin rebuilt the factory in 18 months and opened the new manufacturing plant in 1981 on the same site.

Over the next 24, years Godwin Pumps of America and H.J Godwin remained trusted business partners and began working hand-in-hand to develop new models of Dri-Prime pumps. In 1985 John Michael Paz became President and Owner of Godwin Pumps of America, and began heavily marketing the Dri-Prime line throughout his territory along the East Coast of America.

"Godwin Pumps created the North American pump rental market as we know it today, and since its inception, has remained at the forefront of the pump rental industry," said Duke Jurich, Owner of AJ Jurich Inc., a Godwin customer to this day.

By using the Dri-Prime to create innovative cost-saving solutions for rental customers, Paz began to grow the US rental business exponentially. By 1995, the company purchased their first corporate aircraft and Paz set out to grow the distribution business starting with the southeast, mid-west, and California, and eventually securing all of Canada. Throughout the 1990s, Godwin Pumps of America opened company-owned stores to support the rental, sales and service of the Dri-Prime line.

"We were creating market and supporting it through emergency response and 24-hour service. When my father and I started the company, we set a goal to provide the finest customer service in the industry and become the best pump rental company in the world," said Paz.

Across the pond in the UK, H.J. Godwin's distribution business was growing. The export department was marketing the range and versatility of the Dri-Prime line and selling pumps to distributors in Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Belgium, and Australia.

"When our HL, or "High Lift," line was created in 1980, it gave us the opportunity to market the Dri-Prime to mining companies," said John Miller, Managing Director for Godwin Pumps Limited. "The automatic priming system and rugged build of the machine attracted mine superintendents who needed reliable pumping equipment to dewater their pits. We now ship pumps to mines and quarries in South Africa, Australia, Colombia, Ghana, Kyrgystan, Mali, Mongolia, Canada, the United States and more," said Miller.

In 2001, Paz, H.J. Godwin's largest distributor purchased the Quenington manufacturing facility, renamed it Godwin Pumps Limited, and restored the company to a family-owned business.

"Since becoming one company, our US rental business has allowed us to be the biggest user of our own equipment. We are truly vertically integrated. We design, manufacture, service, sell, and rent our own equipment. Our field engineers communicate directly to our design engineers, allowing us to consistently refine our pump designs and materials of construction. This relationship keeps us at the forefront of the portable pump industry," said Paz.

Experiencing explosive growth through the 2000s, Godwin Pumps introduced more than 10 models of Dri-Prime pumps.

"We grew fast because we have great pumps and great people," said Paz. "We doubled the size of our UK facility in 2006, adding a new engineering office, test area and production space. At the same time, we were in the planning stages of a new US distribution warehouse to support our North American distributor network that has grown to over 100 locations. In 2009, we opened the 50,000-square-foot building which is now stocked full of Dri-Prime pumps and over $12 million in parts inventory. These expansions continue to allow us to better our service and products, and continue to be the market's most reliable, responsive and reputable pump company."

"For this next decade, Godwin will be focused on Latin America and expanding our reach throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East with our CD and HL Series Dri-Prime pumps at the forefront of this expansion," said Paz.

2010/04/15

(Munich, Germany — April 19, 2010) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, will be on-hand to discuss its range of automatic pump and equipment controls at bauma 2010 in Hall A6, Stand 406 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre from April 19 – 25.

Known worldwide for introducing the Dri-Prime automatic dri-priming pump in the United States, Godwin Pumps remains at the technological forefront by developing automatic controls for its diesel and electric-driven pumpsets.

The PrimeGuard™ Controller is available on all Godwin Dri-Prime pump models with Tier III electronic diesel engines and optional on non-electronic diesel engines. The PrimeGuard Controller is a fully programmable control system that allows users to vary pump and diesel-engine speed based on input from level, flow, pressure transducers or standard floats, allowing your Dri-Prime pump to start and stop automatically without an operator. The PrimeGuard has the unique ability to set parameters and monitor the pumping system, thereby reducing labour costs associated with manning pump-watches. In addition, it can be programmed to provide maintenance reminders and operational warning alarms. For extended temporary or permanent standby applications, the PrimeGuard can be programmed to exercise the diesel-engine.

Godwin also offers Godwin Variable Frequency Drives (Godwin VFDs) which automatically vary electric motor speed to maintain wet-well level and discharge pressure. These variable speed controls, optimize system performance and increase efficiency and mechanical reliability by automatically starting and stopping using switches, transducers and SCADA remote signals and protecting against over current and temperature, short circuit, under voltage and phase loss. The Godwin VFD monitors motor conditions such as speed, torque, voltage, current and power, and mitigates the effects of waterhammer from startup and shutdown of pumpsets.

The Godwin PrimeGuard Controller and Godwin VFDs reduce wear and maintenance costs and increase pump longevity through smoother starts and stops. They also provide power savings by enabling the pump and motor speed to vary and match system demands, thereby using only the energy required.

Primarily used in applications including drinking water distribution systems, booster pump applications, pumping into sanitary force mains and pump applications that require a pump to match a pressure, level or flow condition, Godwin automatic pump controls regulate pump and engine speed to maintain a process variable, much like a Godwin VFD on an electric motor drive pump.

"We use our equipment, so we have benefitted from our first-hand knowledge and experience," said Godwin President, John Michael Paz. "The development and evolution of these controls has helped us proactively manage increasing fuel and/or power costs, while also prolonging the life of our equipment. We are pleased to extend these same benefits to our customers."

Bierschbach and Godwin Pumps

2009/04/02

(Bridgeport, NJ — April 2, 2009) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, joined forces with Fargo, ND-based distributor Bierschbach Equipment & Supply (Bierschbach) to provide Dri-Prime pumps for the flood relief efforts along the Red River Valley in Minnesota and North Dakota.

As a Godwin distributor, Bierschbach began making calls to local municipalities to deliver flood relief through its inventory of Godwin Dri-Prime Pumps.

"The City of Fargo took their first two pumps from us on March 23rd. We have now rented a total of 34 Godwin Dri-Prime CD100M and CD150M pumps," said Mike Anderson, Branch Manager of Bierschbach's Fargo facility. "Some of the pumps we have on rent are from our own inventory, and others were delivered from Godwin's Helena, MT branch."

Realizing that Bierschbach would be responding to this emergency, Godwin Pumps deployed Helena-based Andy Fitzhugh to assist in the relief effort.

"I arrived in Fargo late in the day on Tuesday, March 24th. At that point, Bierschbach was already securing orders including six CD150M pumps for the city of Ada, MN. The next morning, we secured an order for ten CD100M pumps for the city of Moorehead, MN at 9:00 AM and delivered the pumps at 2:00 PM the next day. That is how the rest of this effort unfolded, with Bierschbach taking orders and working with us to deliver and set up equipment as quickly as possible," said Fitzhugh.

With storm sewers backing up throughout the area, the Godwin Dri-Prime Pumps were used to pump flooded stormwater out of the backed up storm sewer, over the temporary clay dikes, and into the river. "With the help of Andy and Godwin, we have been able to meet the demands this flood has placed on the area," said Anderson. "We expect the pumps to be on rent for these cities for the next month, and look forward to seeing the floodwaters subside because of the reliability of our equipment and people."

(Chicago, IL — October 19, 2008) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, is debuting its Heidra® hydraulic submersible line with the addition of a 12-inch (300 mm) model HS300 hydraulic-powered submersible pump in its booth (#28127) at the 81st Annual Water Environment Federation's Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) at McCormick Place in Chicago (IL) October 19th to 22nd.

Capable of flow rates to 6,000 gpm (1,360 m3/h) and heads to 200 feet (61 m), the HS300 is a self-contained, hydraulic powered submersible pump with a diesel-driven hydraulic power unit. The HS300 is a cast iron pump with cast chromium steel impeller designed for general pumping with solids handling up to 3¾ inches (95 mm) in diameter, ideal for sewer bypass and municipal sludge applications with more than 28 feet (8.5 m) of suction lift. Its integrated steel cage on the pumpend protects the pump while submersed, provides a lifting bale for easy transfer and provides an anchor spot for the hydraulic fittings. Its unique double mechanical seal is immersed in isolated oil bath for unlimited dry running capability.

A standard Godwin PrimeGuard™ Controller provides programmable operations including setting maintenance timers and automatic starting and stopping. A safety shutdown system incorporated into engine controls prevents equipment damage from engine fault or failure, while the integral 200 gallon (757 l) fuel tank capacity provides over 24 hours of continuous operation. "Quick Disconnect" hydraulic fittings simplify setup, installation and shutdown of the HS300.

Godwin's HS300 joins nine other hydraulic submersible pumps in the Heidra line that deliver sewage and solids handling up to 5 inches (125 mm).

(Chicago, IL — October 19, 2008) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime automatic self-priming pump, will feature its Dri-Prime® Backup System (DBS™) in its booth (#28127) at the 81st Annual Water Environment Federation's Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) at McCormick Place in Chicago (IL) October 19th to 22nd.

When electric submersibles and generators fail, pumping stops in the lift station and collection systems run the risk of costly Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs). Operating independent of electric power, the Godwin DBS automatically starts and stops using the Godwin PrimeGuard™ diesel engine controller when conditions warrant.

The Godwin DBS allows collection systems to take advantage of peak shaving – meaning it relieves the electric submersible lift station with additional pumping capacity during peak flow periods, or that the entire pumping capacity can be switched over to the diesel-driven DBS power during mandatory rolling blackouts. In addition, the Godwin DBS enables preventative maintenance without downtime.

"For nearly the same investment as a standby generator or less, the Godwin DBS offers a reliable contingency plan," said Godwin President John Michael Paz. "Since the DBS is not a part of the power grid, it is unaffected by the failure points that a generator backup plan may incur, including electric submersible pump failure, transfer switch failure, and/or control panel failure."

Godwin's DBS is reliable enough for use during primary power, switchgear or pumping failures; and robust enough for primary pumping during routine maintenance of the lift station. Available in sound attenuated enclosures in sizes 2 inches (50 millimeters) through 24 inches (600 millimeters) with flows to 10,000 GPM (2,271 cubic meters per hour), heads to 600 feet (183 meters) and solids handling capabilities to 5 inches (125 millimeters) in diameter, a Godwin DBS is an innovative solution to lift station backup that continues to make its mark in applications throughout the country.

Capable of heads to 600 feet (183 m), the HL160M pumps maximum flows to 2000 gpm (454 m3/h) and passes solids up to 1 3/8 inches (35 mm) in diameter. With a working pressure of 285 psi (19.6 BAR) and 90 psi (6.2 BAR) of suction pressure, the HL160M pump is an ideal catalyst for mine dewatering, high pressure water supply for sand and aggregate washing, tunnel shaft dewatering, and temporary fire systems.

Like all Godwin Dri-Prime pumps, the HL160M automatically primes from dry to 28 feet (8.5 m) of suction lift. Available with an environmentally-friendly Caterpillar C.15 Tier 3 engine, the pump will also run dry indefinitely without damage during intermittent flows due to a high pressure, oil bath, double mechanical seal designed with solid silicon carbide faces.

The HL160M is the largest in Godwin's Extreme High Head range of pumps, joined by the HL110M 4-inch by 3-inch (100 mm x 75 mm) pump and the HL130M 6-inch by 4-inch (150 mm x 100 mm) pump. Capable of total dynamic heads to 615 feet (185 m), the HL110M pumps maximum flows to 500 gpm (115 m3/h) and passes solids up to 3/4 inches (19 mm) in diameter. The HL130M pump is capable of heads to 600 feet (183 m), flows to 1300 gpm (295 m3/h) and has solids handling capabilities to 1 3/8 inches (35 mm). The large impeller in the Extreme High Head range allow these single stage, close-coupled pumps to do the same work as two or more pumps staged within mines, or a maintenance-prone multi-stage pump.

Bierschbach and Godwin Pumps

2008/06/25

(Bridgeport, NJ — April 2, 2009) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, joined forces with Fargo, ND-based distributor Bierschbach Equipment & Supply (Bierschbach) to provide Dri-Prime pumps for the flood relief efforts along the Red River Valley in Minnesota and North Dakota.

As a Godwin distributor, Bierschbach began making calls to local municipalities to deliver flood relief through its inventory of Godwin Dri-Prime Pumps.

"The City of Fargo took their first two pumps from us on March 23rd. We have now rented a total of 34 Godwin Dri-Prime CD100M and CD150M pumps," said Mike Anderson, Branch Manager of Bierschbach's Fargo facility. "Some of the pumps we have on rent are from our own inventory, and others were delivered from Godwin's Helena, MT branch."

Realizing that Bierschbach would be responding to this emergency, Godwin Pumps deployed Helena-based Andy Fitzhugh to assist in the relief effort.

"I arrived in Fargo late in the day on Tuesday, March 24th. At that point, Bierschbach was already securing orders including six CD150M pumps for the city of Ada, MN. The next morning, we secured an order for ten CD100M pumps for the city of Moorehead, MN at 9:00 AM and delivered the pumps at 2:00 PM the next day. That is how the rest of this effort unfolded, with Bierschbach taking orders and working with us to deliver and set up equipment as quickly as possible," said Fitzhugh.

With storm sewers backing up throughout the area, the Godwin Dri-Prime Pumps were used to pump flooded stormwater out of the backed up storm sewer, over the temporary clay dikes, and into the river. "With the help of Andy and Godwin, we have been able to meet the demands this flood has placed on the area," said Anderson. "We expect the pumps to be on rent for these cities for the next month, and look forward to seeing the floodwaters subside because of the reliability of our equipment and people."

Godwin Pumps

2008/03/04

(Bridgeport, NJ — 2008) Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, recently debuted its Dri-Prime CD140M and CD180M pumps.

The new, three-inch solids handling 4-inch by 4-inch CD140M and 8-inch by 6-inch CD180M portable diesel pumps offer both elevated heads and solids handling capabilities without sacrificing flow rate. The CD140M pump achieves total dynamic heads to 280 feet (85 m), solids handling to 3 inches (75 mm) in diameter and flows to 1,100 gpm (250 m3/h). The CD180M pump achieves total dynamic heads to 260 feet (80 m), solids handling to 3 inches in diameter and flows to 2,000 gpm (455 m3/h).

"When we introduce a pump to the market, it is a result of the type of insight that only comes from designing, manufacturing, testing and using your own equipment. These pumps are a perfect example of that," says Godwin president, John Paz. "We have found that with the construction of new home communities throughout the United States, more and more lift stations require more pressure to feed out to the force main, which is probably an already crowded line. These new pumps achieve elevated heads without sacrificing solids handling capabilities, which is what the municipal market demands."

Available with John Deere, Caterpillar or any customer-specified diesel engine or with an electric motor, the CD140M and CD180M pumps are automatic self-priming Dri-Prime pumps with the ability to prime and re-prime from dry. Featuring an oil bath mechanical seal, the pumps run dry without damage and are ideal for intermittent flow conditions associated with bypass pumping and back-up municipal lift station applications.

The CD140M and CD180M pumps round out Godwin's elevated head series of high volume solids handling pumps, which includes the CD160M 6-inch by 6-inch pump.

The portable, gasoline-powered Wet-Prime pumps and the Sub-Prime electric submersible pump complement the line of Godwin Power generators and Godwin Lights light towers that the company introduced in 2006. These expanded product lines enable Godwin Pumps to offer its customers solutions to any jobsite need.

Available in dewatering, trash, plastic, pressure and diaphragm models Godwin Wet-Prime pumps are capable of maximum heads to 285 feet (87 m) and maximum flows to 425 gpm (96 m3/h). The pumps are ideal for applications including construction dewatering, landscaping and irrigation, farming, remote firefighting and marine construction.

(Bridgeport, NJ — 2008) After more than 100 years on the same site and nearly 30 years in the same factory space, Godwin Pumps Limited (GPL) in Gloucestershire, England, has received a major makeover that includes a 15,300 square-foot (1,421 square-meter) expansion. Not only has the expansion enabled the factory to be more flexible and efficient, but Godwin Pumps officials say it will also benefit end-users by providing quicker deliveries and better product availability.

"By adding to our original factory, we gave ourselves the ability to provide faster, more flexible deliveries to our customer base," said John Miller, GPL managing director.

Godwin Pumps, the worldwide manufacturer of the original Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, has been manufacturing pumpsets at the U.K. facility since the end of the 19th century. It supplies a range of pumpsets for the construction, municipal, oil and gas, petrochemical and industrial markets through a worldwide distributor base.

In August 2005, construction began on a 15,300 square-foot (1,421 square-meter) expansion that includes a new fitting shop assembly area, office space and storage area. Godwin Pumps workers began using much of the new area in September 2006.

A majority of the space — 12,000 square feet (1,115 square meters) — has been used to enlarge the factory area. Before the expansion, Godwin Pumps workers assembled components into bare shaft pumpends and then fitted them onto an engine and base assembly all in the same fitting shop. But today, the original factory area is used only for building bare shaft pumpends, which are then moved to the added workspace and mounted to the engine and base assembly. Along with eight new fitting assembly bays, a new service area and a new electrical department, Godwin Pumps has added a new and improved test facility. The fully acoustic area enables workers to test flow rates up to 10,000 gpm (2,800 m3/h), pressures up to 370 psi (25 bar) and powers up to 600 HP (450 kW).

The remaining 3,300 square feet (307 square meters) was designated for offices. The top floor comprises 65 percent of the additional office space and is devoted to the design and engineering department, which includes seven computer-aided design (CAD) stations, project engineers and the service management and quality assurance departments. The lower floor houses the purchasing department, new production control room and offices for the production and materials directors.

"With the new offices and new engineering department, it gives us the capability to do more design, development, research and value engineering of the product," Miller said. "Pumping applications are not all the same, so we have to be as flexible as possible in our approach to the ever-changing worldwide markets."

Revamping the storage area was another major component of the Gloucestershire manufacturing facility's makeover. Two new carousel storage systems created more storage space by enabling workers to move smaller components from shelves onto the new carousel system. A new racking system was also installed to accommodate Euro-style pallets, doubling pallet storage.

The expansion efforts at the UK factory are paralleled with additions to Godwin's U.S. Home Offices including a 60,000 square foot (5,575 square meter) distribution facility and a 60,000 square foot (5,575 square meter) fabrication facility, scheduled for completion in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

Godwin Pumps Showcases Full Range of Dri-Prime Pumps at Bauma 2007

2007/04/23

MUNICH, GERMANY – Godwin Pumps®, the worldwide manufacturer of the original Dri-Prime® pump, will display its full range of Dri-Prime pumps that has grown to include 12 CD series high-volume, 7 HL series high-lift and three HL extreme high-lift pumps at Bauma 2007 in Munich, Germany. The extensive range of automatic self-priming pumps makes it easy for end-users to match a specific pump to a specific need.

The Godwin Dri-Prime product line consists of two series of pumps – the CD series for lower pressure applications – suited for construction dewatering and sewer by-passes, and the HL series for high-lift applications – suited for higher pressure applications such as mine and quarry dewatering and pumping through nozzles or long pipelines. The HL series offers three new models – the HL110M, HL130M and HL160M extreme high-lift models – providing extensive application flexibility through a single-stage impeller design with lifts to 183 meters (600 feet) and solids handling capability to 35 millimeters (1 3/8 inches). The single-stage design, coupled with automatic self-priming, run dry capability and solids handling capability, is something very unique in pumps generating pressures to 183 meters (600 feet).

The Godwin Dri-Prime product line provides a wide range of capabilities for pumping many different products at many different flow and pressure requirements. Dri-Prime pumps can also be equipped with your choice of diesel or electric drive, manual or automatic controls, high-volume or high-lift pumping capabilities and various materials of construction, including cast iron, hardened cast steel or stainless steel.

Dri-Prime pumps are readily available in discharge sizes from 50 to 400 millimeters (2 to 16 inches) with maximum flows to 2,265 cubic meters per hour (10,000 gallons per minute), lifts to 183 meters (600 feet) and solids handling to 125 millimeters (5 inches) in diameter. The Godwin Dri-Prime range has proven itself to be the most reliable pump in the industry. It can efficiently pump clean water or handle sewage, tough municipal and industrial sludge, storm water, mine drainage and petroleum products.

"You can't tell from a manufacturer's cut sheet how reliable a pump is. Reliability comes from a pump seal that can run dry without burning up, a priming system that works better than any other and a heavy-duty design that takes the rugged use our customers encounter. Reliability is reflected in reputation and no pumps are better than Godwin Pumps'," said Ron Askin, western regional manager of Godwin Pumps of America, Inc.

Some of the many benefits of Godwin Dri-Prime pumps include:

A feature that automatically primes and reprimes the pump without needing to add water initially. The units prime to 8.5 meters (28 feet) of static suction lift and can be used with very long suction hoses. An oil bath mechanical seal design that protects the pump seal, so the pump can run dry without damage. A close-coupled design with the diesel or electric drive that eliminates alignment problems during field maintenance. A straight-line suction to the impeller eye that creates an efficient flow path and greater resistance to plugging. Hardened cast steel and stainless steel construction material options that improve the lifespan of the units and lower overall operating costs.

Godwin Pumps is the manufacturer of the original Dri-Prime pump with a large, worldwide rental fleet. It is the only company in Europe to offer two different series of pumps within its portable pump range.

When partnering with Godwin Pumps and the Dri-Prime pump ranges, customers receive versatility, convenience and knowledge. With a variety of models, powered by diesel engines or electric motors, customers increase versatility by achieving more application requirements. They also receive the convenience of working with a single source for equipment, parts and services, including engineering design and technical support.

"By adding to our original factory, we gave ourselves the ability to provide faster, more flexible deliveries to our customer base," said John Miller, GPL managing director.

Godwin Pumps, the worldwide manufacturer of the original Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming pump, has been manufacturing pumpsets at the U.K. facility since the end of the 19th century. It supplies a range of pumpsets for the construction, municipal, oil and gas, petrochemical and industrial markets through a worldwide distributor base. In addition, Godwin Pumps also manufacturers a range of fire pumps, to both LPCB and FM specifications, which are sold to many countries around the world.

In August 2005, construction began on a 1,421-square-meter (15,300-square-foot) expansion that includes a new fitting shop assembly area, office space and storage area. Godwin Pumps workers began using much of the new area in September 2006. The final phase of the construction was completed last month.

A majority of the space – 1,115 square meters (12,000 square feet) – has been used to enlarge the factory area. Before the expansion, Godwin Pumps workers assembled components into bare shaft pumpends and then fitted them onto an engine and base assembly all in the same fitting shop. But today, the original factory area is used only for building bare shaft pumpends, which are then moved to the added workspace and mounted to the engine and base assembly. Along with eight new fitting assembly bays, a new service area and a new electrical department, Godwin Pumps has added a new and improved test facility. The fully acoustic area enables workers to test flow rates up to 2,800 cubic meters per hour (10,000 gallons per minute), pressures up to 25 bar (370 psi) and powers up to 450 kW (600 hp).

The remaining 307 square meters (3,300 square feet) was designated for offices. The top floor comprises 65 percent of the additional office space and is devoted to the design and engineering department, which includes seven computer-aided design (CAD) stations, project engineers and the service management and quality assurance departments. The lower floor houses the purchasing department, new production control room and offices for the production and materials directors.

"With the new offices and new engineering department, it gives us the capability to do more design, development, research and value engineering of the product," Miller said. "Pumping applications are not all the same, so we have to be as flexible as possible in our approach to the ever-changing worldwide markets."

Revamping the storage area was another major component of the Gloucestershire manufacturing facility's makeover. Two new carousel storage systems created more storage space by enabling workers to move smaller components from shelves onto the new carousel system. A new racking system was also installed to accommodate Euro-style pallets, doubling pallet storage.

Serving customers worldwide, Godwin Pumps is the manufacturer of portable rental pumps with a fleet of more than 5,000 rental units, U.S. rental branch offices, a worldwide distributor network of more than 100 locations and manufacturing facilities on two continents. Godwin Pumps also offers customized sales and service training to its distributors.

Godwin Pumps Donates to the American Red Cross

2005/12/30

BRIDGEPORT, NJ USA – Through a matching gift program, Bridgeport, NJ-based Godwin Pumps and its employees recently made a donation to the American Red Cross (ARC) Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund. The Executive Director of the Gloucester County chapter of ARC, Laura Steinmetz, presented Godwin Pumps' President John Michael Paz with a Certificate of Acknowledgement at Godwin's Bridgeport, NJ home office.

Paz praised the efforts of Godwin people throughout the company for their impressive response to Hurricane Katrina.

"In the nearly 30 years I've been in business, I have witnessed repeated examples of dedication and generosity by the people at Godwin Pumps who work for me around the country," said Paz. "Hurricane Katrina is no exception. In addition to extraordinary job-related response, we had an outpouring of donations from Godwin employees, matched by the company, to aid in the American Red Cross's hurricane relief efforts in New Orleans."

From Texas to New Jersey to the state of Washington, people at Godwin's 22 U.S. locations worked together to supply pumps, generators, and light towers to the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina hit. At the same time, Godwin employees continued to support the demands of existing customers throughout North America according to Paz. During the days following the devastation, several Godwin employees traveled to New Orleans to work on-site setting up pumping systems and servicing any equipment in need of repair.

Immediately after Hurricane Katrina, Godwin employees rallied together to collect supplies of water to send to New Orleans. Then once the initial demands of the emergency were addressed, Godwin and its employees focused on making a donation. Dollars donated by Godwin Pumps and its employees to the American Red Cross will provide for the ongoing relief efforts according to Laura Steinmetz, Executive Director, American Red Cross, Gloucester County, NJ Division.

"Through these efforts, Godwin Pumps and the American Red Cross will help provide tangible and meaningful aid to those people impacted by Hurricane Katrina as people begin to rebuild their homes, their communities, and their lives," said Paz.

Focus on the well-primed US pump industry

2004/09/03

For this month's special focus, World Pumps returns to the USA's $6 billion/year pump market. According to a recent study from Freedonia, demand for products from the country's 300-plus pump manufacturers is currently rising 5% per year on average as most pump-using industries emerge from the recession of the early 2000s, and this growth is likely to continue until at least 2007. By way of introduction, John Michael Paz, president of Godwin Pumps of America, considers the development of markets for automatic self-priming pumps in the USA.

The story of wet self-priming pumps versus automatic self-priming pumps specific to the American pump market is as close to my heart as any part of the US pump industry. Having the great fortune of starting my professional career in pump sales upon my gradu- ation from college in 1978, I have watched the matu- ration of this market for more than 25 years.

Back in the 1970s, pump users in US markets – including municipal, construction, industrial and mining – for the most part believed the diesel portable pump had to be manually or wet primed. At the time, a UK-based pump manufacturer had made a stab at educating the Americans on the benefits of an alternative: a vacuum- assisted priming pump. Alternatives to a manually primed pump got the attention of my father, who owned a construction company, Paz Brothers, Inc. After some investigation, he and I quickly recognized the sig- nificant benefits of an automatic self-priming pump – specifically the Godwin Dri-Prime® – versus a manual, wet self-priming pump. This innovative pump brought a whole new level of reliability to the portable self-priming market for a host of reasons, not to mention its capabil- ity of static suction lifts to 28 ft... While wet self-priming pumps were rendered unreliable at 20-ft lifts, automatic self-priming pumps opened the door for contractors to gain eight more feet of sub-grade excavation.

Market creation

As applications for Godwin Dri-Prime pumps started to grow in the UK, my father and I arranged to become a distributor of this pump range in America and estab- lished Godwin Pumps of America in 1976. This new design was pioneered first in the Mid-Atlantic States, enabling contractors to try new methods of dewatering at risks they would not have previously attempted. The first construction-type applications included ground dewatering, wellpointing and self-priming with extend- ed suction lines up to 200 ft to reach hard-to-get-to water problems. Later, further innovative applications developed that allowed contractors to extend the use of these pumps to municipal and industrial venues as

well. These applications were even more important as it became clear that the automatic self-primer could lift and pump heavier sludges for municipalities and indus- try that users would not even have attempted with wet self-primers. We were creating market.

The large, municipal, sewage bypass project as we know it today in the USA was born with the arrival of the automatic self-priming pump. Sewer line repairs and rehabilitation projects have soared in size with the increased reliability offered by new pump technology and the advent of trenchless technology, which super- seded more traditional dig-and-replace methods. The trend towards large pipe rehabilitation, led by Insituform Technologies, Inc, a leader in pipe rehabilita- tion and trenchless technology, demanded reliable overpumping or bypassing to make possible the use of the cured-in-place process. The first bypass pumping sys- tems used in pipe rehabilitation handled small flows up to 5 MGD (million US gallons per day). Today, it is not uncommon for our company to bypass flows of 225 MGD with 45 12-inch diesel-driven automatic self-prim- ing pumps. Developing this expertise took years of hard work, persistence, and much interaction and partnering with consulting engineers.

The introduction of automatic self- priming pumps into the USA led to the pioneering of large sewer bypasses, effectively creating a new market as well as replacing the old, wet self-primers in their established markets.

Godwin Pumps of America - Improving on a Tradition of Quality

2004/09/01

There are a variety of ways a company can make a name for itself. In the past, many have started out by uncovering a way to do something that hadn't been done before. More recently, the trend moved toward taking something fairly ordinary,then simply doing it better than everyone else. The last category consists of forward-thinkers — those who see vast potential where others might only see exhausted possibilities.

In the mid-1970s, Godwin Pumps was a small, quality-driven company head- quartered in Great Britain's Coln Valley. Founded in 1890, the company manu- factured a variety of pumps, including a one-of-a-kind design that utilized an automatic priming system to provide dry-running capabilities. The unique pump also featured solids handling capabilities and high-discharge heads.

Intrigued by an alternative to manual prime pumps, John Michael Paz and his father, John Sr., toured Godwin's manufacturing facilities.The trip left the two men with the realization that a unique opportunity lay in front of them. From that point on, the Godwin name would never be the same.

More than 25 years after being introduced to Godwin's innovative design, Godwin Pumps of America now designs, distributes and manufactures nearly 30 different sizes and models of the Dri-Prime pump.The company took over global operations as well, with the acqui- sition of the company's original U.K. manufacturing hub in 2001. But according to Paz, who took the reigns from his father in 1985, assuming the role of Godwin's president and CEO, the reason for the company's success isn't necessarily all the changes that have taken place in that time — it's what has stayed the same.

"The Dri-Prime pump is a great prod- uct, but the underlying theme of Godwin is that we have been able to find some really great people,"says Paz. "Combined, myself and our corporate regional managers have almost 100 years of bypass experience. It has taken a long time to build the founda- tion for our expertise, because we wanted to allow ourselves to grow [naturally] to the next step.We didn't want to get so overly rambunctious that we outgrew our capabilities. I think that is what has allowed us to retain good employees who are all driven by the same goal — to make Godwin Pumps succeed."

Building a Foundation

Godwin Pumps set up North American distribution in 1976, sharing a building with Paz Brothers Inc., a heavy construction company started by John Paz Sr. in Bridgeport N.J. Operations grew rapidly as the young Paz aggressively marketed Godwin's Dri-Prime to municipalities and con- tractors throughout the East Coast.At the time, the company imported the three essential components of the pump (engine, pump end and trailer) from the British facility,then assembled and distributed the finished products. But as soon as they moved into their own facility in 1985, the Godwin name was well on its way to the next level.

"When we got into our own build- ing, we started doing our own assem- bly and that allowed us to grow, hire more people, do more business and fill orders for people who couldn't wait six or eight weeks to get it from England," Paz recalls. "Plus, we knew that with an unknown product we would need to focus on rental to develop some sort of market identity, so it also let us get pumps out faster to supplement our rental fleets quick- er. Once that happened, we were able to grow the business exponentially."

Godwin then started to create its own markets. Paz and Godwin's sales team went to people in the relining busi- ness and convinced them that they could attempt things that most owners, engineers and contractors were still apprehensive about trying.When they started doing the CIP in smaller lines early on, it forced the company to grow the size and breadth of its rental f leet. What were originally 6-in. pumps, went to 8-in, to 12-in, then up to 16- in. pumps.

To get the product out to the widest range of cus- tomers, Paz set out to distribute the Dri-Prime through three primary vehicles. Since its inception, Godwin has set up 20 company-owned branch locations throughout the United States, plus relationships with more than 25 distributors to rent and sell the equipment. Its rental fleet has matured from a small 18-machine fleet in 1977, to 5,000-unit armada.

"From the beginning, the Dri-Prime has been one of the best products on the market," says Doug Sayre, owner of Allied Technical Services, Cincinnati, Ohio, which has been a Godwin Pumps distributor for more than 15 years."The way it worked, Godwin came from behind very quickly to became the industry leader.We almost didn't realize that it happened — we were all out there working hard and doing our job everyday.Then one day we looked up and realized what we had accomplished."

An influx of trenchless bypass proj- ects has followed much in the same way. Convincing a municipality to employ a trenchless method that required a temporary bypass had never been easy, but in many cases it wasn't the trenchless part that an owner was leery about — it was the bypass. So once word got around about the relia- bility that could be achieved with an automatic, self-priming pump, those reservations began to fade quickly.

"The bypass system is what has scared so many owners and engineers away from trenchless technologies," says Joe Abbott, Godwin's national sales manager."Many of the trenchless meth- ods require a form of a temporary diver- sion of flow, so we have grown up with a lot of the [trenchless] contractors, and now we can give them a comfort level that it can be done, done properly and at a reasonable cost. With the Dri- Prime, the concept of the automatic, self priming pump and the other components of the machine have made a dramatic difference."

Godwin Pumps Receives "Spirit of America" Award

2002/10/08

BRIDGEPORT, NJ – Godwin Pumps recently received the National Mining Association's (NMA) Spirit of America Award. Presented by NMA President and CEO Jack N. Gerard at a luncheon in Washington, DC, the award recognized Godwin Pumps and five other NMA member companies for rushing equipment, early technical assistance, and standby mine-rescue teams to help in last summer's successful rescue of miners from the Quecreek Mine in Somerset, Pennsylvania

Gerard likened the spirit behind the volunteer assistance to that shown by other Americans in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. "The Quecreek rescue was a feat almost beyond comprehension, if not hope," said Gerard. "The quick response of these companies to Quecreek reflected the industry's deep instinct to rally in times of need – the American Spirit," Gerard concluded.

The other companies receiving the NMA Spirit of America award were Ingersoll Rand Co., RAG American Coal Holding Inc., Murray Energy Corp., Consol Energy, Inc.

Godwin Assists in Miners Rescue

2002/08/12

Early Thursday morning, July 25, Godwin Pumps went into action to assist in the rescue mission at Quecreek Mine, 55 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, PA. Nine miners were trapped after breaching the wall of a flooded and abandoned adjacent mine, releasing more than 50 million gallons of water into the shaft where they were working. Within hours, Godwin had three employees, seven Dri-Prime pumps and the necessary hose and pipe on site to begin pumping from the flooded mine shaft. After 77 hours of pumping and drilling, all nine miners were pulled from the 240-foot deep shaft in a dramatic rescue. Godwin met with the Nine Miracle Miners on August 12, 2002. They are pictured here with the HL10M Dri-Prime Pump.

Customers and Distributors Make Godwin Pumps Part of Their Contingency Plans

2001/10/05

Bridgeport, NJ – When the Mississippi River crested and a Minnesota contractor called in an emergency rental request to a Godwin Pumps distributor, he was told a truck was on its way. The distributor then called Godwin for the equipment he needed. Godwin delivered.

Distributors as well as customers are accustomed to getting an immediate response from Godwin Pumps. "That's not unusual," said Bob Spatz, Godwin Pumps Chicago branch manager, who fielded the telephone call. "We've built our business on quick response to emergency situations, especially during the spring thaw when flooding can occur.

However, Godwin doesn't wait for an emergency to happen before putting plans into action. For example, Ziegler Rental, a Godwin Pumps distributor headquartered in Maple Grove, MN, met with one of its primary customers a month before the flood season in Minnesota.

Equipment Availability
Dave Lillquist, operations manager for Ziegler, had already contacted Godwin's Chicago branch to determine the availability of pumps and to advise of a possible flooding situation.

Ziegler had taken advantage of Godwin's Regional Re-rental Program before and was pleased with the results. The program gives Godwin distributors the opportunity to rent from Godwin at a discount from the national rental rates. It is ideal for distributors who may not have the right size pump immediately available within their rental fleet or are low in inventory due to unusual circumstances like a flood or other emergency situation.

Same Day Delivery
When the call came to Ziegler from Kieger Enterprises, Hugo, MN, one of the contractors on the emergency list of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Ziegler immediately notified Godwin's Chicago office. Six Godwin six-inch Dri-Prime Pumps were delivered to Kieger that evening. "Because of the nature of their business, the Kieger people expect an answer within five minutes," said Lillquist, "and we get it for them."

Pat Iwan, general manager of Kieger Enterprises, said they had the pumps on the road to customers within one hour of receiving them thanks to the quick turnaround from Ziegler and Godwin. "We responded to calls in seven states," he said, "because not only was the Mississippi cresting, but also the Red, St. Croix and Minnesota rivers, which join to form the Mississippi."

Within the next two weeks, Ziegler placed re-rent orders with Godwin daily for a total of 20 more pumps. These additional 26 pumps and the 34 Godwin pumps Ziegler initially had in its own inventory were sent throughout the Midwest - St. Paul, Granite Falls and Bayport, MN; Wahpeton, ND; Lansing, IA; and LaCrosse, WI.

Army Corps of Engineers
The Army Corps of Engineers also planned for the worst. They purchased 39 Godwin Dri-Prime pumps and warehoused them in Chicago just for an emergency situation like this. When the flood hit, Godwin Pumps, with a long history of working with the Army Corps of Engineers, helped them mobilize the pumps as needed.

Department of Public Works
The Department of Public Works in Rock Island, IL also needed pumping equipment fast when the Mississippi River started to rise. In the course of five days, Mike Collard, the city's public works manager, ordered 17 Godwin Dri-Prime pumps ranging in size from 4- to 12-inch. With each day's request, Collard enjoyed same day service from Godwin's Chicago branch, 170 miles away.

"We need an 8-hour window to set up equipment before the river gates can be closed," said Collard. "With the spring thaw of the heavy snow we had last winter, the river was rising fast. Added to that was heavy rainfall."

Because he was using Godwin Dri-Prime automatic self-priming pumps, Collard needed only a three-man crew to maintain all 17 pumps around the clock.

"Customers like the automatic self priming feature of our Dri-Primes, because it helps boost productivity and performance," said Spatz. "Just connect the suction and discharge hoses, then start the engine; our pump does the rest. It will prime and reprime from dry - time and again - to 28 feet of suction lift." According to Spatz, routine maintenance normally is limited to checking engine and seal cavity oil levels.

"This auto-priming feature is an absolute requisite in an emergency situation," said Collard. "We usually get quotes from several pump sources, but when it comes to performance, availability and reliable response time, Godwin Pumps always delivers."

To meet the Mississippi River emergency demand, 15 tractor-trailers were used to ship pumps. In addition to the Godwin Chicago branch, branches as far away as Georgia, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and West Virginia shipped equipment to meet the demand.

"All 16 members of our Chicago branch were involved in this effort," said John Michael Paz, president of Godwin Pumps, "as well as another 14 from five other Godwin branches. And most of them worked through the Easter weekend." He added, "That's the nature of our business. It's our niche as well as our forte. We're good at it because of the breadth of our fleet and our willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done."

More Emergency Response Applications
Drought emergencies are another instance where customers activate contingency plans which include Godwin Pumps. During the drought last summer, one industrial facility called on Godwin to pump water from a spring fed lake to a canal to replenish its supply to keep the plant in operation.

Similar situations exist for municipal water supplies. Because of the drought, reservoirs became too low for one municipality to draw from, so Godwin pumps were used to pump water from various sources to the reservoir.

In addition to drought emergency needs, municipalities also rely on Godwin to supply temporary booster pump rentals and 24-hour service to pump station and line maintenance crews at wastewater facilities.

In the Gulf region, Godwin's local rental branch in Houston participates in the hurricane contingency plans for some of the refineries along the ship channel.

Godwin Pumps, headquartered in Bridgeport, NJ, with 14 U.S. branch offices and a network of more than 100 worldwide distributors, serves customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week across the construction, industrial, municipal, aggregates, government and environmental markets.

Godwin Pumps Acquires U.K.-Based Manufacturer

2001/06/12

BRIDGEPORT, NEW JERSEY - Godwin Pumps of America, Inc. (GPA), the largest manufacturer and rental supplier of portable pumping systems in North and South America, announced today its acquisition of Godwin Pumps Limited (GPL), Quenington, England.

The combined companies will have sales in excess of $100 million.

John Michael Paz, who assumed the role of GPA president in 1985, will remain as president. Michael Stone, managing director of GPL, will continue in that position, as will the other directors of GPL. Both companies are privately held.

According to Paz, the excitement of merging these two companies is shared by both parties. GPA has been GPL's major client over the past five years. Combining the manufacturing expertise of GPL - which has been designing and building portable pumps for over 100 years - with the rental, sales and marketing prowess of GPA, should surge the growth of the new entity.

"The long term relationship of our two companies has now blossomed together to form a synergy of talents that will continue to make the Godwin Dri-Prime the leader in portable diesel driven pumps," stated President Paz. "We are poised for explosive growth not only in the United States, but also around the world. From the seedling in 1976 of Godwin Pumps of America to accomplishing this merger, it is a dream come true for myself as well as for the employees of both companies. Being able to grow our business through our core expertise is within our corporate philosophy of 'Sticking to the Knitting."

Well known for the reliable Dri-Prime pump and unparalleled customer service, Godwin Pumps is the industry leader in portable pumping. The Godwin Dri-Prime pump is the pump of choice for all types of temporary and permanent applications. The Dri-Prime out performs the competition with features such as automatic self priming to 28 feet, dry-running capabilities, solids handling and high discharge heads.

Godwin Pumps also offers Heidra hydraulic and Sub-Prime electric submersible pump brands ideal for jobs with suction lifts greater than 28 feet. Yet, Godwin Pumps offers more than just pumps. With a full line of products and accessories, Godwin Pumps sets the industry standard for providing complete portable pumping systems engineered to meet job specifications. Godwin Pumps offers service 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week; engineering and design services; custom pump fabrication; and complete parts inventory.

Godwin Pumps Announces New Dri-Prime Pump

2001/05/29

BRIDGEPORT, NJ - Godwin Pumps of America, Inc., the largest manufacturer of portable rental pumps in North America, announced today the addition of the CD300M 12-inch portable trash pump to its line of Dri-Prime automatic self priming pumps.

"We are pleased to offer a new trash pump in our family of Dri-Primes," said John Michael Paz, president, Godwin Pumps. "With the CD300M model, we now have a high head pump offering in our CD series which is well known for handling high volumes and large solids."

According to Paz, the CD300M Dri-Prime handles flows to 6,000 gpm, heads to 200 feet, and solids to 3.75 inches in diameter. "This pump is ideal for contractors or anyone who has a large volume dewatering job with high heads," said Paz.

Like all Godwin Dri-Prime pumps, the CD300M model primes and re-primes automatically from dry up to 28 feet of suction lift. However, according to Godwin Pumps National Sales Ma

nager, Joe Abbott, this particular model has two unique features. "Our new CD300M Dri-Prime is designed to be direct coupled to the engine flywheel which enhances its compactness," said Abbott. He added, "This feature also increases reliability, because there is no need for a gear box or belt drive."

"Secondly, the pump has a double, high pressure oil bath mechanical seal designed with solid silicon carbide faces," said Abbott. "The unique oil bath mechanical seal allows the pump to run dry indefinitely without damage - a great feature for pumping jobs with intermittent flow."

Other CD300M Dri-Prime pump features include a cast chromium steel impeller and a low profile discharge design. Engine options include a CAT 3126TA or John Deere 6081AF.

Philadelphia Sewer Replacement a Work of Art

Facing a task that might have daunted even Rocky, engineers from Philadelphia's Water Department needed to replace the deteriorating Central Schuylkill east side intercepting sewer line running beneath the city's famed Art Museum. They decided to install a parallel sewer line and use the existing sewer as an overflow line.

To accomplish the task in this busy area -- besides the museum and the historic Waterworks building, there are also a number of boat houses for the area's university rowing teams located along the eastern bank of the Schuylkill River, and the adjacent Kelly Drive is a major commuter thoroughfare -- they needed to address a couple of concerns. One was the sheer volume of water. Up to 29 million gallons per day (mgd) passed through the line. The length of the new sewer line was also a factor. It would have to run approximately 1,100 feet.

The solution to these concerns was to provide a bypass system that would reroute the waste water around the construction area, from a sump created just upstream of the new overflow connection to a point beyond a new distribution box that would connect the new sewer with the existing sewer. With the bypass in place, the construction crew could work in dry, uninterrupted conditions with greater safety and efficiency while they built a new distribution box and tied in the new interception line.

City engineers, working with the two prime contractors, Kenny Construction Co. and Driscoll Construction Co., and with Godwin Pumps of America, Inc., utilized a bypass system built around eight Godwin Dri-Prime DPC300 12-inch diesel-driven pumps, six primary units and two units as backups. The capacity of the system is more than 35 mgd, which leaves a cushion for rain events. Godwin Dri-Prime Pumps were chosen because the volume of water and the length of the bypass lines required exceptional reliability. They are also cost-effective, with lower operating costs and manpower requirements for their operation.

The Godwin Dri-Prime pumps automatically self-prime and can run dry if necessary. These are important features because sewer flow can be intermittent and pumps in some sewer bypass systems can occasionally see little or no water flow, although that was not a factor in this project since the main interceptor line flows continuously. The Godwin pumps can also pass solid materials up to 3.5 inches.

The pumps feed into four 18-inch lines running parallel from the pump location to the end of the construction area. Three of the lines discharge into the sewer via 20-inch diameter core drills and the last line discharges into a manhole located just beyond the Spring Garden Street bridge.

The 18-inch discharge lines are made of HDPE pipe, which Godwin Pumps supplies in 50-foot lengths that the company's fusion technicians cut and weld on the job site to meet project requirements. "It makes for a clean system," says Godwin Pumps Sales Engineer Michael Delzingaro. "The pipe is strong, allows runs of any length, requires little maintenance, and, when the job is finished, it can be easily disassembled and reused. This installation is a major undertaking," he continues. "Godwin Pumps is the only rental equipment supplier who has the resources and the ability to handle a project of this size. Our Dri-Prime DPC300 pumps are recognized as industry standards."

Bids for the project were let out in mid-1999. Initial work was begun shortly after as Kenny Construction Co. did the tunneling for the new sewer line. Driscoll began its part, setting up the bypass system and constructing the new distribution boxes in April, 2000. Work was completed on this phase in mid-June, 2000. When the project is complete, the bike path will be restored for public use. "People will be able to enjoy the area again in comfort," Delzingaro adds. "They'll never know we've been here."

Godwin Pumps Introduces New Hydraulic Submersible

2000/09/22

BRIDGEPORT, NJ - Godwin Pumps of America, Inc., announced today its new Heidra 200 eight-inch hydraulic submersible pump for heavy duty dewatering applications.

"This new addition to our line of Heidras is ideal for municipal and industrial applications," said John Michael Paz, president, Godwin Pumps. "However, with its solids handling capability of up to 3 1/8 inches, this pump satisfies general pumping needs, too." Paz added, "Customers find the hydraulic models an alternative to electric submersibles, because the pumpends are explosion proof and they are perfect for job sites where electricity is not readily available."

With maximum flow rates to 2900 gpm and discharge heads to 180 feet, the new Heidra 200 hydraulic submersible pump boasts a rugged construction, specifically a cast chromium steel impeller and a cast iron pumpend.

A unique double, oil bath mechanical seal design gives the Heidra 200 model unlimited dry running capability, an ideal feature for jobs with intermittent flow conditions. An integral 175 gallon fuel tank capacity provides over 24 hours of continuous operation.

Powered by a variable speed diesel engine for flexibility, the new Heidra 200 hydraulic submersible pump comes standard with a John Deere 6068T model and is available with other engines as well. Electric drive versions also are available. For rental information on the new Heidra 200, as well as other Heidra hydraulic submersible models ranging from 3 inches to 10 inches in size, and Godwin's full line of quick-disconnect hydraulic fittings for easy setup, installation, and shutdown, call your local Godwin Pumps branch office or corporate headquarters at 856.467.3636.
