Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime automatic self-priming pump, shared the news of the passing of Joseph L. Abbott, Jr. – the company’s National Sales Manager.

Joining the Godwin Pumps team in 1989, Abbott brought sales and manufacturing expertise to the company from the sewer rehabilitation industry. In the ensuing 20 years, Abbott was the primary sales contact with consulting engineers, working on hundreds of large and small bypass operations – from 100,000 GPM to 300 MGD – pumping process sewers as well as municipal treatment plants, pump stations and sewer systems. In addition, Abbott helped build Godwin’s distribution network throughout the United States and Canada, managed product pricing and oversaw bids. Abbott also had many speaking engagements at trade functions throughout North America.

A Radnor, PA resident, Abbott received his Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Saint Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, PA.  He served as a member of NASSCO for more than 20 years, also as  a director. He was also a member of the American Rental Association, the National Mining Association, the North American Society of Trenchless Technology, the Water Environment Federation and the National Utilities Contractors Association.

Abbott is survived by his wife and their three children.
