ITT water spinoff company to be called Xylem

Date: Friday, July 22, 2011

ITT Corporation’s water technology and services business will be named Xylem when it becomes a standalone company later this year.

Xylem, derived from classical Greek, is the tissue that transports water in plants.
ITT says that Xylem highlights the engineering efficiency of the water-centric business by linking it with the best water transportation of all – that which occurs in nature.
Xylem will consist of the Water & Wastewater (including wastewater transport; biological, filtration and disinfection treatment and analytics), Residential & Commercial Water and Flow Control businesses.
