Now a $3.2 billion standalone water technology company, Xylem Inc., White Plains, N.Y., handles multiple product brands for water treatment, testing and efficient use.
Spun off from ITT Corp., also in White
Plains, Xylem serves water users in industrial, public utility, building services
and agricultural settings. Xylem's products and services address the full cycle
of water. Its brands include Bell and Gossett, Flojet, Flygt, Godwin, Goulds
Water Technologies, WTW and YSI, among others.
The company serves customers in more
than 150 countries to address critical water issues such as growing water
scarcity, aging infrastructure, more stringent environmental regulations and
the equipment needed to meet those issues.
“I’m extremely proud to announce the
launch of a unique company, the product of more than 100 years of experience in
the water business and the collective work and expertise of our nearly 12,000
employees and our strategic partners around the world,” says Gretchen McClain,
Xylem's president and CEO.
The name Xylem comes from classical
Greek meaning the tissue that transports water in plants. Get more information about
