Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world's most challenging water issues announced today that its Flojet® pumps have earned the Global Strategic Supplier of the Year award from Manitowoc, the world's leading foodservice equipment company.

"We applaud Xylem for its exceptional job in understanding the needs of our business and those of our customers, while offering us the superb reliability and adaptability of its products," said Tom Wooderson, director of supply chain, Manitowoc Foodservice.

Customers across the globe that benefit from the partnership between the two companies include leading soft drink beverage makers and suppliers, quick-serve restaurants and convenience stores; essentially anywhere soft drinks or fountain service are available.

"We're proud to be recognized as Manitowoc's Global Strategic Supplier of the Year," said Jim Jackson, director of global beverage sales for Xylem's Flow Control business unit. "It's a testament to the strength of our relationship, the hard work of the Xylem team, the experience that comes with serving over four billion soft drinks per year and our commitment to delivering products that delight Manitowoc's customers."
