Xylem Inc. engages in the design, manufacturing, and application of highly engineered technologies for the water industry. The company is an equipment and service provider for water and wastewater applications with a portfolio of products and services addressing the cycle of water, from collection, distribution and use to the return of water to the environment. Its brands include Bell & Gossett and Flygt. It operates in the core application areas of the water equipment industry, such as transport, treatment, test, building services, industrial processing, and irrigation. Business Strategy The company’s strategy is to improve shareholder value by providing distinctive solutions for its customers' most important water productivity, quality, and resilience challenges. Segments The company operates through two segments, Water Infrastructure (Collection, Distribution, and Return) and Applied Water (Usage). Water Infrastructure This segment involves the process that collects water from a source and distributes it to users, and then returns the wastewater responsibly to the environment. Within the Water Infrastructure segment, the company’s pump systems transport water from oceans, groundwater, aquifers, lakes, rivers and seas. From there, its filtration, ultraviolet (UV) and ozone systems provide treatment, making the water fit for use. After consumption, the company’s pump lift stations move the wastewater to treatment facilities where its mixers, biological treatment, monitoring, and control systems provide the primary functions in the treatment process. Throughout each of these stages, the company’s analytical systems test the quality of water for consumption, as well as for its return to nature. Water Infrastructure serves its customers, public utilities and industrial applications, through three closely linked applications, such as transport, treatment and test of water and wastewater. Transport The Transport application includes all of the equipment and services involved in the movement of water from sources, such as oceans, groundwater, aquifers, lakes, rivers and seas to treatment facilities, and then to users. It also includes the movement of wastewater from the point of use to a treatment facility and then back into the environment. The Transport application also includes dewatering pumps, equipment and services, which provide the safe removal or draining of groundwater and surface water from a riverbed, construction site or mine shaft and bypass pumping for the repair of aging public utility infrastructure, as well as emergency water removal during severe weather events. The company offers a range of highly engineered products, such as water and wastewater submersible pumps, monitoring controls, and application solutions; it does not serve the market for lower-value equipment, such as pipes and fittings. When the company provides a configure-to-order solution, it configures a standard product to its customers’ specifications. The company provides engineer-to-order products to meet the customization requirements of its customers. Its key brands for this application are Flygt and Godwin. Treatment The Treatment application includes equipment and services that treat both water for consumption and wastewater to be returned responsibly to the environment or reused. Primary served markets include public utilities and industrial operations. While there are various treatment solutions in the market, the company focuses on three basic treatment types, such as filtration systems, disinfection systems, biological treatment systems, including mixers. Its key brands for this application are Leopold, Wedeco, Sanitaire and Flygt. Filtration uses gravity-based media filters and clarifiers to clean both water and wastewater. Wedeco offers chemical-free and environmentally friendly disinfection systems, both UV and ozone oxidation, to treat public utility drinking water, wastewater and industrial process water. Biological treatment systems are key to the treatment and mixing of solids in wastewater plants, which are provided through the company’s Sanitaire and Flygt brands. Test Analytical instru
