December 1, 2008Godwin Pumps recently opened its 25th branch location in Southern California and added a depot in Albany, N.Y.
Located in the City of Carson, the facility is in proximity to major refineries, including: Conoco Wilmington, Conoco Carson, Exxon Mobile Torrance, BP Arco Carson, Tesoro Wilmington, Valero Wilmington, BP Calciner Wilmington and Chevron El Segundo.
“We chose the Carson location to provide more immediate rental, sales and service support to our refinery business in the Long Beach area and to support our ongoing business in the western portion of the Los Angeles basin with municipal, industrial and construction clients. This location complements our existing Mira Loma facility, in the eastern portion of the Los Angeles basin,” said Godwin Western regional manager Ron Askin.
The new facility offers 2,400 sq ft of office space; 12,000 sq ft of building space and another 75,000 sq ft of yard space to support the current demand and long-term growth expected in the Long Beach area.
Headed by operations manager Chris Batt, the Albany facility will provide Godwin with 1,500 sq ft of office space; 6,000 sq ft of shop space and an acre of yard space.
“We have received an increasing amount of business from the Albany area,” said regional manager Herb Schroeder. “Our new facility in Albany will help us provide better coverage with our entire range of equipment. We’ll be able to provide better service to our customer base in Albany.”
