Making pumps in India

Flowserve has opened a new pump manufacturing facility in Coimbatore, India that will provide pump products for the oil and gas, power and chemical industries.

The 100,000 square foot pump facility was built on 14 acres at an investment of approximately $8.5 million. The new facility will nearly double Flowserve's production capabilities for single stage, multi-stage, barrel and vertical engineered and industrial pumps.

The 200-person management and engineering staff at the operation will also provide services and support to the region.

Flowserve's products are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, caustic chemicals, intense pressures or other demanding conditions in some of the most remote and developing geographies.

The new site will manufacture of industrial and engineered pumps for both the domestic and export markets.
