Godwin supplies pumps to Hurricane Irene impact areas
| August 30, 2011
Pump manufacturer Godwin Pumps continues to support emergency relief efforts throughout the East Coast after Hurricane Irene.
“We fleeted 85 diesel Dri-Prime pumps last week,” said Grant Salstrom, Godwin’s chief operating officer.
As Irene’s path unfolded throughout the week, Godwin delivered in excess of 350 Dri-Prime pumps from eight East Coast branches in support of municipal, industrial, and even recreational flood relief applications, including controlling water levels in Citizens Bank Park – home of the Philadelphia Phillies.
“Our goal was keeping our customers above water,” said Salstrom. “So much so that we skipped painting the pumps our signature orange color in an effort to get them where they needed to be before they were needed.”
Godwin also rented dozens of portable diesel generators.
