Pentair is committed to shareholders as well as employees. It has rejected three attempts to buy the company and pledged to be independent for long-term growth. Pentair has three categories of subsidiaries: Professional Tools and Equipment, Water and Fluid Technologies and Electrical and Electronic Enclosures.
