ITT Goulds Pumps Celebrates 175 Years With $33K Donation


Goulds Pumps commemorated its 175th anniversary of leading industrial pump innovation with a celebratory event and check presentations of $33,400 in total contributions divided amongst The United Way of Seneca County, Ronald McDonald House, National Women’s Hall of Fame, and Habitat for Humanity. The event on Wednesday highlighted the company’s appreciation for the support of its employees and the community, featuring a car show, health fair, food, live music, and presentations of the company’s philanthropic impact by each nonprofit organization.

In celebration of longstanding partnerships, leaders present from each organization were bestowed with significant donations to be used towards current and future community support initiatives. In addition to its commitment to charitable contributions and corporate volunteerism over the last several years, Goulds Pumps also encourages employees to allocate funds to a charity of their choice each pay period.

Since its founding in 1848 by Seabury S. Gould, Goulds Pumps products and solutions have transformed from the first all-metal well pump to the highly intelligent and reliable industrial solutions and pumping technology that the company provides to oil and gas, mining, power generation, chemical, pulp and paper, and general industrial facilities, today. It remains one of ITT Industrial Process’ oldest legacy brands.
