Building Better Futures for Today and Beyond

For over 100 years, Bell & Gossett, a Xylem brand, has been an industry thought leader and pioneering manufacturer of pumps, valves, heat exchangers and accessories for hydronic HVAC — including steam and heat transfer — plumbing and wastewater applications.

Building Better Futures represents our commitment to advancing sustainability, decarbonization and efficiency across all aspects of our business, and tells the overarching narrative on how the work we do now contributes to better futures for our customers and communities. 

Our History

Formed by W.C. Bell and E.J. Gossett in Chicago in 1916 to manufacture and sell case hardening compounds, with potable water heaters added two years later, B&G has since made a name for itself as an industry leader in efficiency, expertise and education – through its instructor-led and online classes at the Bell & Gossett Little Red Schoolhouse; through its commitment to building better futures; and through its world-class products, comprehensive solutions and over 100 years of unmatched application expertise in more than 150 countries.

Together, with Xylem’s well-known Applied Water Systems global brands, we meet the world’s most critical water challenges head-on by engineering the broadest portfolio of products, applications and services to create efficient systems and sustainable solutions. Every day, our company meets the expanding needs of growing populations, communities and industries that are driving demand for water system improvements, often in the harshest environments.
