ITT Opens New U.S. Facility for Advanced Testing and Packaging of Complex, Highly-Engineered Pump Systems
Jane Alexander | August 6, 2014
ITT Corporation (ITT) recently opened a new addition at its Seneca Falls, NY, manufacturing campus. The advanced testing and packaging facility is focused on the highly engineered pumps that are typically used in oil and gas, petrochemical and mining applications. The new facility encompasses more than 89,000 square feet that include office space and approximately 79,000 square feet of product operations.
According to ITT, this $22 million expansion project was driven, in large part, by the growth of the company and its Goulds Pumps brand in the oil and gas industry, which requires complex pump products for use in refinery, pipeline, production and other critical environments. Earlier this year, the company also completed an expansion of its Norman G. Gould Technical Center that houses product engineering and research and development staff at the Seneca Falls site, .
The new building complements an advanced pump factory that ITT opened last year in South Korea. Together, the two facilities coordinate with the company’s network of other manufacturing and packaging sites to serve customer requirements around the world. Focusing on configured-to-order process pumps and engineered pumping systems, the Seneca Falls Operation are supported by a foundry that provides high-quality castings and metallurgy services for the product range.
