Grant Salstrom has responsibility for the growth and development of the Godwin and Flygt brands within the dewatering market in the United States.
Xylem, a global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, appointed Grant Salstrom to the role of managing director, Godwin.
In his new role, Salstrom has responsibility for the growth and development of the Godwin and Flygt brands within the dewatering market in the United States. Pumps and related services are offered through a network of distributors and 38 branch offices throughout the country. In addition, Salstrom will oversee the Godwin manufacturing facility in Gloucestershire, United Kingdom, and support global growth as Xylem looks to expand its dewatering business around the world.
Salstrom joined Godwin Pumps in 1987 as a parts manager, progressed through a series of positions, and was appointed VP and chief operating officer in 2008. His experience with Godwin Pumps, and now the Xylem dewatering solutions business, is vital in his new role.

Now as a brand under Xylem, we can reach a broader market for our pumps and system design services,” said Salstrom. “We are growing sales and rentals throughout the U.S., adding capacity to our already strong network of branches and distributors. We are excited for the year ahead and growing as a brand of Xylem.”
