Xylem. Derived from classical Greek, our name refers to the supporting tissues that help transport water and nutrients from a plant's roots to its leaves.
To the people of Xylem, our name stands for our promise to live our values while solving our customers' most challenging water problems, and to set industry standards for fluid technology applications and water solutions.
