Harleysville, PA - Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE:MPR), announced today that the Company's Environmental Air Solutions business unit has received an order, totaling more than $1.8 million, to supply process and air pollution control equipment to a major alternative energy company for the purification of landfill gases. The order is expected to ship in the fourth quarter of the Company's current fiscal year.
