“Planning and development began with the
initial design in 2005, after fundamental ‘industry changing’ announcements
drove us to consider our motor and control options,” said Flint & Walling
president Scott M. Lechner in a press release. “In 2007, we expanded our
Kendallville manufacturing facilities to support future submersible motor
manufacturing efforts. With comprehensive and highly successful field testing
throughout North America over the past eight years, we are confident F&W
will add value to the industry through our quality control processes.”

Production and engineering manager Eric
Rimmel added, “Manufacturing motors was nothing new for the F&W
Kendallville facilities, as we have been producing our own centrifugal motors
since the early 1950s. In fact, we are the only pump company in North America
that actually winds and makes our own jet and centrifugal pump motors.
Four-inch motors and controllers were a logical expansion for F&W to take.”

Flint & Walling, Inc., established in
1866, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Zoeller Company, headquartered in
Louisville, Ky. Along with its U.S. manufacturing facilities, Zoeller has
engineering and manufacturing operations in Canada, Taiwan and China.
