HARLEYSVILLE, Pa., March 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE: MPR), announced today that the Company's Systems Division has received an order to supply a custom-designed catalytic oxidation system to a major pharmaceutical company in the Northeast United States. The total value of this order is approximately $600,000. The state-of-the-art equipment is expected to ship in the second quarter of the Company's current fiscal year.
Working with a Pennsylvania-based engineering firm, Systems Division was awarded the project based on their solid reputation within the pharmaceutical industry and their ability to provide the optimal equipment for controlling alcohol emissions.

The equipment will incorporate continuous emissions monitoring demanded by strict New Jersey requirements.
"This project is another example of Systems Division's strong presence in the pharmaceutical industry and reinforces their reputation as a supplier of choice for field proven multi-discipline solutions to tough air pollution control problems," stated De Hont. "Together with the momentum we have developed during our recently ended fiscal year in which we reported record revenues and earnings, and a steady level of customer interest and quotation activity, it allows us to remain optimistic about our prospects for the current fiscal year."
