ITT's Water Business Previews New Products, Spinoff Company at WEFTEC
Stand-alone water company Xylem prepares to launch with broad applications expertise, leadership
ITT Corporation's water business is showcasing its new products and identity at the 84th annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) being held Oct. 15 to 19 in Los Angeles. The event comes just before the spinoff of ITT's water business into a stand-alone global water technology corporation, Xylem, planned for Oct. 31.
During the exhibition, ITT is introducing its newest products, including analytical instruments to measure pH, mV, temperature and conductivity; low-pressure sewage pump stations and non-clog pumps under the Flygt brand, and WEDECO-branded energy-efficient ozone oxidation systems and UV wastewater disinfection systems. Gretchen McClain, president of ITT Fluid and Motion Control and future CEO and president of Xylem, will join a panel of top industry leaders in a session moderated by former U.S. EPA Administrator G. Tracy Mehan III, to discuss the future of water.
“Xylem is committed to solving today's global water-related challenges,” said McClain. “As we approach our spinoff into a stand-alone water company, we look forward to working with our partners and customers to further drive innovation in the water space and ultimately, ensure that all people have a safe, steady supply of clean water.”
Upon completion of the spinoff, Xylem will be headquartered in White Plains, N.Y., with 2010 revenues of $3.2 billion and 12,000 employees worldwide.
