The project will retain 14 jobs and create 6 new jobs.
The company will receive approximately $100,000 in sales tax and property tax exemptions. It is anticipated that for every dollar of public support that there will be a return of $63.80 back into the community.
Xylem (Godwin Pumps) offers a broad product line of fully automatic self-priming pumps used in temporary and permanent applications. Pumps are used for dewatering and liquids transfer in mining, construction, municipal, and industrial projects around the world.
