Pentair Ltd, a global water, fluid, thermal management and equipment protection company, today announced the opening of a new pump and booster system manufacturing facility within its integrated manufacturing campus in Sharjah.
The unit will serve the commercial and residential sectors in the region. The new pump manufacturing facility joins the company’s existing valve manufacturing facility and metal casting foundry, providing a well-established foundation from which to introduce new products and services into the local market, the company said.
“As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial, residential and infrastructure pumps, we are focused on the Middle East,” said Gary Witt, president of Pentair Flow Technologies. “Pentair has consistently grown its pump business in the region for many years and we are excited about this next phase of development. The ability to manufacture locally will enable us to provide our customers a broader array of value-added solutions while also enhancing our ability to serve them effectively.”
“This investment reaffirms Pentair’s commitment to the Middle East region,” added Ramesh Nuggihalli, vice president and managing director, Pentair Middle East. “By combining our regional strengths in engineering, manufacturing, sales and distribution with Pentair’s global product design expertise, we can significantly reduce the business development cycle and improve our value proposition for our local customers.”
Pentair has more than 1,200 employees within the Middle East, including manufacturing, services and sales office facilities.
