SWD Welcomes Xylem on board as a Corporate Partner
These are tuff times for everybody, coporates in particular are doing it hard so when Xylem contacted us about helping to continue the current SWD programmes, we were delighted.
People, corporations that understand the social capital are very valuable both in terms of what they give in a monetary sense but more importantly what that support represents. How that affects the broader community, the power of the support becomes multiplied because of its existence.
It had been said by somebody, that you can judge the sophistication of a society by the way it looks after those less fortunate in its society. So to say that SWD is delighted by this relationship would be somewhat of an understatement.
Xylem has FIVE market leading brands, each delivering innovative and effective solutions. This makes Xylem Australia's premier provider of all water and wastewater solutions. Xylem products can be found worldwide, transporting liquid in hundreds of different operations. Whether it's transporting drinking water to the 50th floor of a skyscraper or drainage water up mine shaft, Flygt, Godwin, Leopold, Sanitaire and Wedeco can handle it.
I’m glad to report that Xylem employees and clients have enjoyed some twilight sailing and racing, I hope we haven’t scared them too much. It has certainly been a pleasure to have them on board. And we will be very proud to fly the Xylem flag wherever our boats go in 2013/2014. They are a good company in addressing what must be, one of the big challenges of the world as we know it.
On behalf of SWD I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and welcome.
