Xylem has acquired privately held Heartland Pump Rental and Sales.


The actual terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Heartland Pump, headquartered in Carterville, Ill., has been a business partner with Godwin in dewatering pump rental, services, and systems design since 1995; Godwin is part of the Xylem portfolio.


"We've identified dewatering as a strategic growth market for us, building on our existing capabilities in emergency water removal, bypass, drainage and industrial applications," said Gretchen McClain, president and CEO of Xylem. "This acquisition supports our strategy by expanding our footprint in an important region of the United States."


Heartland Pump employs approximately 100 people, with branches in Evansville, Ind., Horn Lake, Miss., and Nashville, Tenn.
