Pump Manufacturer Recognized Two Years in a Row by Flow Control Readers

Kamp-Lintfort, Germany- October 20, 2011 Almatec®, a premier manufacturer of specialized air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps and a member of Dover Corporation's (NYSE: DOV) Pump Solutions Group (PSG(TM)), announced that it has received the 2011 Flow Control Innovation Award as presented by the readers of Flow Control magazine.
