Godwin Pumps has further expanded its brand with the introduction of a new line of portable, gasoline-powered Wet-Prime pumps and a new Sub-Prime electric submersible pump. Godwin Pumps is the worldwide manufacturer of the original Dri-Prime automatic self-priming pump.

The new line of portable, gasoline-powered Wet-Prime pumps and the Sub-Prime electric submersible pump complement the line of Godwin Power generators and Godwin Lights light towers that the company introduced last year.

The Wet-Prime pumps are available in dewatering, trash, plastic, pressure and diaphragm models, and are capable of maximum heads to 285 ft. (87 m) and maximum flows to 425 gpm (1,610 Lpm). The pumps are ideal for applications including construction dewatering, landscaping and irrigation, farming, remote firefighting and marine construction.

The new Sub-Prime electric submersible pump features a compact, slim-line design with convenient top discharge and is capable of maximum heads to 65 ft. (20 m) and maximum flows of 140 gpm (530 Lpm).

Powered by a dual voltage motor, this pump provides easy field changeover. Capable of fitting in caissons or casings 8 in. (20 cm) in diameter, the GSP20SL pump is ideal for applications including construction, mining and industrial dewatering.

Brand extensions such as light towers, generators and portable gasoline pumps, complement the company’s core business, which is, and always will be, pumps, said Godwin Pumps President John Michael Paz.

According to Paz, the added line of products makes the company a more comprehensive supplier. End-users can rent or buy these products from Godwin Pumps distributors and branches, while independent rental stores can buy and carry the products or re-rent them.

“No matter how you look at it, our end-users reap the rewards and are better taken care of,” Paz said.

The new line of portable, gasoline-powered Wet-Prime pumps and the Sub-Prime electric submersible pump are immediately available.

The company’s parts inventory includes a full range of replacement parts for each of the pumps it sells. In addition, it stocks a variety of suction and discharge hoses and couplings to complete customers’ pumping application needs. Service and support include 24/7 on-site service and repair, engineering specialists to tailor pumping solutions specific to customers’ needs and a comprehensive parts and service facility.

Serving customers worldwide, Godwin Pumps is the manufacturer of portable rental pumps with a fleet of more than 5,000 units, rental branch offices, a worldwide distributor network of more than 100 locations and manufacturing facilities on two continents. Godwin also offers customized sales and service training to distributors.
