Flowserve starts pump manufacturing plant in Coimbatore, India.

 

Flowserve has officially opened its expanded state-of-the-art pump manufacturing plant in Coimbatore, India.

The new 130 000 sq ft expansion is comprised of a state-of-the-art pump production facility and administrative space including a static and dynamic test laboratory.  

Flowserve opened its first production facility at Coimbatore in 2007 to manufacture process pumps for chemical and oil and gas markets up to a rating of 1.1 MW. Block II was inaugurated in 2008 to cover the medium range vertical and multistage barrel pumps for the power and oil and gas markets up to a rating of 3 MW. Flowserve also established a Pump Quick Response Center in Vadadora last year to carry out after market support for the local installation base in the western part of the country.

The new Coimbatore facility will enhance the engineered manufacturing pump capability including single and multistage high energy API pumps, engineered boiler feed water pumps, concrete volute pumps, which will help to serve the demands in the infrastructure sectors of power, oil and gas, and water.
