Xylem expands rental footprint
By Helen Wright15 August 2016
Pump manufacturer Xylem has added to its rental offering in Latin America as well as North America in a series of growth initiatives.
In Latin America, Xylem expanded its dewatering pump rental and services with the opening of three new hubs - in Barranquilla, Colombia; Pará, Brazil; and Chiclayo, Peru.
These new hubs are in addition to six dewatering pump rental hubs that Xylem has opened in the region over the past six years as part of a multi-million dollar (USD) investment in Latin America.
"We continue to experience increased rental demand in Latin America as more and more customers recognize the value of our rental capabilities – a quick and cost-effective way to tackle water removal challenges supported by Xylem's deep water transfer expertise," said David Flinton, senior vice president and president of Xylem Dewatering.
"This significant investment will expand our footprint to a total of 17 dewatering rental locations across the region, enabling us to better meet local customers' needs with timely, turn-key solutions from a single source."
Meanwhile, in the US, Xylem opened a new rental, sales and service location in Little Rock, Arkansas, adding to its network of over 40 branch and rental hubs in the country.
