May 12, 2017 - Pentair, a global company dedicated to building a safer, more sustainable world, has been named to Forbes' list of America's Best Employers 2017 - one of only 11 Minnesota companies on the list. This is Pentair's second consecutive appearance on the list, ranking 413 of 500 based on the publication's evaluation of large companies, nonprofit institutions and U.S. divisions of multinational companies.
