Xylem offers a wide array of pumps through its new rental operation in the Philippines
Xylem recently opened a new pump rental and service business in Calamba in the province of Laguna, Philippines. The site will serve the growing demand across the Philippines and South East Asia. It will also further expand Xylem’s footprint in the region and build on the company’s current manufacturing and sales operations in Calamba.
Xylem’s proven Godwin and Flygt brands play a key role in dewatering and liquids transfer. The Philippines has mineral resources estimated at approximately $1 trillion and its extraction industries present a major market potential for Xylem. The firm’s new facility will capitalise on this market, as well as helping to provide solutions for the country’s increasingly frequent flooding issues following tropical cyclones.
Steve Leung, senior vice president and president, Xylem’s Emerging Markets said, “By utilising rental options, businesses can cut capital expenditure and lead times while accessing extensive dewatering rental fleets and 24/7 on-site services to keep critical operations moving and minimise downtime. Our new pump rental and service hub will offer customers access to our extensive technology portfolio which includes submersible and surface-mounted pump options.”
Xylem manufactures, rents, sells and services its own equipment, providing customers with access to a broad range of dewatering technologies and solutions. The company has invested significantly in its international rental footprint, having recently announced expansions in Europe, South Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.
