Water technology firm Xylem expects a major leap in the market for pump rentals in the GCC as demand for water related services increases.

The company recently opened a new pump rental and service business in Dubai to serve growing demand especially from the construction and infrastructure sectors, as well as municipal customers, across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

This follows Xylem’s announcement in January this year of a $35m investment in expanding its operations in the region.

The investment, which will continue until 2018, will enable the localisation of products as well as building local capabilities, including a pump manufacturing facility, a pump rental and services operation, and offices in the UAE, Oman and Qatar.

“Our new local pump rental and service hub puts us in a very strong position to better serve our customers. Our local team is uniquely qualified with in-depth pump application knowledge that will enable us to provide our customers with customised solutions,” says Graeme Saunders, director of the dewatering business for Xylem MENA.
