Flowserve steps in

Flowserve pumps have been used to carry out emergency repairs after Hurricane Frances caused damage at Jenson Beach Water Treatment Plant, Martin County, Florida. Two of the treatment plant’s four transfer pumps were damaged, severely crippling operations. Flowserve Corp.’s plant in Taneytown, Maryland, was asked to help in replacing the damaged pumps. Kenn Owens, manager for vertical turbine pump products, and Emad Kronfli, manager of Taneytown’s order fulfillment team, immediately reacted. They contacted the Lakeland (Florida) Quick Response Center (QRC), ordering two 350 mm EN-1 single-stage pumps. Everyone at the Lakeland QRC pitched in to machine parts, make shafting, assemble the pumps and get them ready for delivery within one day. Normal lead time for these pumps is eight weeks, but the pumps were ready in two days.
