“Overall, I am proud of how well our employees and operating platform have performed in maintaining profit margins throughout the current cycle,” said Mark Blinn, Flowserve president and chief executive officer. “Looking forward, while we still believe that our long cycle large project business will remain choppy into 2011, we are seeing more evidence that our short cycle OEM businesses have started recovering, particularly in the developing markets. Our aftermarket bookings also continue to show strength, with our Integrated Solutions Group providing incremental growth, giving us additional confidence in the aftermarket opportunities being generated by our end user focus.

“We have made significant progress in our efforts to strategically position our company to drive disciplined profitable growth over the long term through investing in high growth markets, combining our pump and seal operations, investing in product and employee development and our recent acquisition of Valbart. We believe that these efforts, when combined with the benefits from our realignment programs, our cost control initiatives and the continued strength of our balance sheet, will help provide the platform leverage and operating flexibility needed to accomplish this important work. Additionally, we are pleased with the resilience and continued commitment of our people and the benefits of our diversified global operations.”
