Goforth Williamson Inc. provides pumps, pump repair, and field services to industrial and municipal markets in the Southern United States. Over the past few years, GWI has completed several pump repairs for a company specializing in building maintenance services. This facility maintenance company supports a major Atlanta-based airline by performing maintenance services for the airline’s hangar. Not only does the facility maintenance group clean 6,000 aircraft each month, they are also responsible for maintaining the lift station located inside the airline’s hangar.The Challenge
In August 2015, the chopper pump operating in the hangar’s wastewater sump failed. The facility maintenance group sprang into action, pulled the pump out of the sump, and sent it to the GWI pump repair center for inspection.
