Flygt is a manufacturer of dry and submersible pumps, submersible mixers and related intelligent control systems. Product development and manufacturing of Flygt products is based in Sweden.

History[edit]

Sixten Englesson, chief engineer, invented the first submersible drainage pump in 1947 and the first submersible sewage pump in 1956. During the 1970s, the product range was expanded with mixers and other products.[1][2]

On January 12, 2011, ITT Corporation announced its plan to separate the company into three, stand-alone, publicly traded, and independent companies.[3] The future water company was named Xylem Inc. ('zi-lem) and comprises four business units - Water Solutions, Flow Control, Analytics and Residential and Commercial Water.[4]
