ITT Corp. has added an 89,000ft2 building to its Seneca Falls, N.Y., manufacturing campus. It will house an advanced testing and packaging facility for its engineered pumps, which are used primarily by the global oil and gas, petrochemical and mining industries. Approximately 10,000 ft2 of the new building will be used for office space with the balance dedicated to product operations.
According to the company, the $22 million expansion was driven primarily by the growth of ITT and its Goulds Pumps brand in the oil-and-gas industry. That industry requires highly engineered pump products for use in refinery, pipeline, production and other critical environments. The facility includes a new 8,000-hp performance test facility that was custom designed for testing and final configuration of complex pump packages up to 30' long. It can test pump flows up to 150,000 gal/min.
Earlier this year, the company also completed an expansion of its Norman G. Gould Technical Center on its Seneca Falls campus, which houses its product engineering and research and development staff.
