18 August 2000

William L. Kacin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation, announced that the Company's International Division, in cooperation with Met-Pro's Fybroc Europe operation in Heerenveen, the Netherlands, has received the largest single order for Fybroc corrosion resistant fiberglass pumps in the Company's history. The order, valued in excess of $850,000, consists of 207 sets of pumps to be installed at a new aquarium under construction in Valencia, Spain. The pump sets, which range in size from 20 gpm to 3,400 gpm, will be manufactured at the Fybroc Division plant in Telford, Pennsylvania. They are scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of this fiscal year. The new "Parque Oceanografico de Valencia" will be one of the five largest aquariums in the world, ranking third in water surface area (800,000 ft2) and first in water volume (11.1 million gallons). It will feature ten attractions and 20 exhibits, which will include more than 500 valuable sea life species from the oceans of the Mediterranean, tropical, continental, Arctic and Antarctic regions. A dolphinarium will have a number of shows daily. The Fybroc pumps, which will be utilized for sea water circulation and filtration, are critical to proper management of the aquarium's life support system. This will be Fybroc's first major aquarium installation in Europe and validates Fybroc as the leading pump supplier to sea life aquariums around the world.
