Godwin Pumps, manufacturer of the Dri-Prime automatic self-priming, dry-running pump, has opened three new locations in the Midwest – Indianapolis, Ind.; Evansville, Ind.; and Cincinnati, Ohio.
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. S
“The opening of these three new branches in the heart of the U.S. 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,” Godwin President Michel Bakhos said in a written statement from Godwin.
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, also in a written statement. “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.”
