March 25, 2008 — /PRNewswire/ — HARLEYSVILLE, PA — Raymond J. De Hont, chairman and CEO of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE:MPR), announced today that a $1.2 million order originally reported on October 30, 2007 to supply Strobic Air Tri-StackTM fans for use in a research facility located in the Middle East has been increased to $2.3 million, making it one of the largest projects of its kind ever awarded in the region. The equipment is expected to ship in the second quarter of the company’s fiscal year, ending January 31, 2009.
As a result of the amended contract, the company’s international division, in cooperation with its Strobic Air subsidiary, will now supply a total of 40 Strobic Air Tri-Stack fans, utilizing 18 heat recovery plenums, to exhaust fumes from multiple research laboratories. Each of the fans will be equipped with Strobic Air’s patented acoustical silencer nozzle, which minimizes sound output levels at the fan discharge. Strobic Air was awarded this project based on their reputation for innovative, best-in-class products to solve complex laboratory exhaust challenges.
“Strobic Air’s superior quality and outstanding performance continues to enhance its reputation as the worldwide supplier of choice for critical laboratory ventilation requirements,” states De Hont. “This order, our first with this leading international contractor, arose from the growing worldwide recognition of our ability to help solve the rising demand for more environmentally sensitive development. We remain optimistic that our innovative products and solutions will increasingly appeal to not only markets in the Middle East, but to markets around the world that need to meet the proliferation of environmental regulations.”
