Lubbock Pumps Help Save Miners

Thank you for all your hard work, that is what the banner reads in front of the Goulds Pumps Factory in Lubbock. Last week, while the nation was captivated by the nine miners stuck underground, Goulds shipped two pumps to Pennsylvania to help in the rescuing effort.

Employees at Goulds are proud they could assist in the crisis.
