Franklin Electric recently acquired the product lines and assets of CPS Pumps, along with its current manufacturing process in Rossville, Tennessee. The acquisition brings Franklin Electric a deep and diverse set of key products and expertise, including a full portfolio of line shaft turbines, split case, end suction, and ANSI-style pumps, allowing us to better serve our global customers in the agriculture irrigation, municipal, industrial, and mining markets. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to expand our presence into fire pump applications in the commercial and industrial markets.
We welcome the employees of CPS Pumps, located in Rossville, TN, into the Franklin Electric family. The business and Rossville facility will be integrated into the existing Global Water business structure. We will be immediately transitioning the business into Franklin Electric’s business systems and ramping production rates in order to serve existing and new customers for the 2020 season. The product lines will carry the FPS product brand moving forward and will be available through our existing industrial and groundwater distribution channels as well as direct to many existing CPS global customers.
We look forward to serving your company and are excited to bring Franklin Electric’s five key factors of performance into these new product segments and applications. A Franklin Electric sales representative will be reaching out in the near future to answer any questions and provide additional information on this transition.
