On October 31, 2011, Xylem completed its spinoff from ITT Corporation, and began a new chapter as a leading global stand-alone water technology company. Doing business in more than 150 countries, Xylem is a world leader in the design, manufacturing and application of highly engineered technologies for the water industry — providing equipment and services for water and wastewater treatment and applications that address the full life cycle of water.
Xylem is derived from the classical Greek word for the supporting tissues that help transport water and nutrients from a plant's roots to its leaves. In everything we do, our name stands for our promise to solve your most challenging water problems and to set industry standards in terms of water handling and technology. We know this is best achieved when partnering closely with our customers.
Comprising more than 12,000 people, Xylem is unified in a common purpose: creating innovative solutions to global water challenges. And, through our corporate citizenship and social investment program, Xylem Watermark, we bring clean water, sanitation and hygiene education to schools and communities in emerging markets and respond with water solutions around the globe.
WATER SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR INDUSTRY
Xylem offers a complete range of advanced water treatment systems across public utility, residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, environmental, government, construction and food and beverage applications.
