Across Pentair’s global business units is the drive to be global leaders. But we would rather lose business for the right reasons than win for the wrong reasons. To stay true to our 'Win Right' philosophy, we constantly look to implement innovative ways to better our business. It's our goal to not only be the global leader in the water solutions and technical products industries, but also to lead the way within the global business community.
With that goal in mind, Pentair’s global business units complement each other to deliver comprehensive solutions to a variety of industries around the world. This unified approach helps Pentair lead the way in sustainable and custom solutions. And with each global business unit working together, Pentair is well-positioned to address global water scarcity issues and hopefully, find more ways to improve life every day.

The Pentair Integrated Management System (PIMS) drives performance improvement at Pentair every day. PIMS provides the processes, methods and tools we use for continuous improvement in operations, sales, marketing, engineering, finance, business development and other functions.
PIMS is Pentair’s system for continuous improvement. It helps employees create sustainable processes that deliver greater value by eliminating waste and increasing velocity.
The PIMS model has our customers at its center. PIMS puts our customers first by focusing on what they want and need from the products and services we provide.
All Pentair employees play a role in making PIMS a core part of our culture and processes. Partnerships between our people and our customers drive improved business results for both, by continuously improving our service levels and economics.
Continuous improvement requires that we regularly measure our effectiveness. Measuring and tracking our performance allows us to make data-driven decisions, which leads to better results. Safety, Quality, Delivery, Cost and Cash are the key indicators we use to measure success and determine how changes affect the value we deliver.
PIMS utilizes the Seven Transformation Processes as the overarching process for implementing plans and achieving continuous improvement.
When we implement the PIMS focus on People, Data and Process with discipline, rigor and passion, we achieve breakthrough results.

Win Right. These two words embody both our drive for success and our dedication to doing business led by the highest ethical standards. We are committed to building success by following practices of candor, integrity, trust and respect embraced by every employee. We would rather lose business for the right reasons than win for the wrong reasons.
Pentair's Win Right culture is grounded in a written code of ethics, where clear goals are set, accountabilities are embraced and performance is rewarded. We focus on speed and rigor in our operations to produce superior results. Our leaders are in tune with their customers and the marketplace and with our employees. We value openness, informality and candid, conversational exchanges. We convey respect for our customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and the communities in which we operate.
Originally written in the 1970s by Pentair's founder, Murray Harpole, Pentair's Code of Business Conduct and Ethics has governed our business and financial practices for more than thirty years.
Practicing the highest business, ethical and moral principles will fuel Pentair's success and its value as a corporation. Times may have changed since Mr. Harpole first wrote the Code; Pentair's values and guiding principles have not.
Through ongoing training, anonymous reporting of concerns, and regular employee surveys, we test our work against the principles of the Code. Our ongoing dedication to living out our shared values in our work is key to Pentair's success.
Pentair's Code of Business Conduct is the foundation for specific practices, policies and guidelines that determine how we conduct day-to-day business, and it remains Pentair's cornerstone. It calls all employees to help:
- Manage Pentair according to the highest business, ethical, moral and civic standards as a public company
- Operate in a manner that earns the respect of our shareholders, employees, communities, customers, suppliers and all others with a stake in our success
- Make Pentair a top-performing company, managed for the long-term benefit of all of our constituents
To help ensure that the Code remains our cornerstone, every employee, worldwide, receives a copy of our Code of Conduct when they join Pentair; the Code is available in every major language spoken by our employees (today, totaling 13 languages).
