HARLEYSVILLE, Pa., June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE: MPR), announced today that the Company's Fybroc business unit has received an order for approximately $500,000 in pumps. The order is expected to ship in the second and third quarters of the Company's current fiscal year ending Jan. 31, 2009.
"This is second large order Fybroc has received this year from the Eastern European market," stated De Hont. "It reinforces Fybroc's position as the leading fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) pump supplier to sea life aquariums around the world and is another example of Met-Pro's growing international reach. It is also another encouraging sign of the growing worldwide demand for not only Fybroc's products, but all of Met-Pro's innovative solutions as well."
This order is to supply one hundred-nine (109) corrosion resistant fiberglass centrifugal pumps for the new Florya Aquarium in Istanbul, Turkey. This aquarium facility, which is now under construction, will be the first in the country of Turkey and the largest aquarium in Eastern Europe. It will feature several sea life exhibits as well as other key attractions and will utilize Fybroc's 1500 Series horizontal pumps for seawater circulation, intake, and filtration, all of which are critical to proper management of the aquarium's sea life support systems. Fybroc was selected for this project based on its extensive experience in this field, as well as the successful installation and performance of its pumps in aquarium and marine-oriented facilities throughout the world. Because Fybroc pumps are virtually unaffected by seawater, they can be found in over 100 aquariums worldwide, including locations in Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, the Canary Islands, China, Dubai, Europe, Grand Cayman, Hong Kong, Korea, Kuwait, Mexico, New Zealand, Taiwan, and multiple United States locations.
