Harleysville, PA - Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE:MPR), announced today that the Company's Strobic Air business unit has received an order valued at approximately $1.0 million, for research laboratory fume hood exhaust systems to be installed at a premier university outside of the United States. This order is expected to ship in the third quarter of the Company's current fiscal year.
Strobic Air will supply a total of 11 Tri-Stack® fans, all of which will utilize Strobic Air's patented Acoustical Silencer Nozzle and Acoustical Windband technology, allowing the university to meet local air quality regulations. The order will also include four Energy Recovery Units, which will drastically reduce the laboratory's energy costs.
"This order, together with the more than $700,000 of international orders for Strobic Air systems announced last week, demonstrates Met-Pro's broad international reach and reinforces Strobic Air's reputation for technologically advanced, energy efficient, and environmentally-friendly exhaust systems," stated De Hont.
