Dallas, TX— Flowserve Corp. reports that, on behalf of its 14,000 employees worldwide, it’s donating up to $150,000 to the International Red Cross for earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Southeast Asia. The firm says it selected this organization based on its global reach and disaster expertise.

“Thankfully, our current information indicates that none of our employees or their direct family members were injured or lost in the terrible tragedy that Southeast Asia has suffered. However, our employees from around the world realize other families and companies weren't as fortunate, so they immediately took action in the days following the disaster,” says C. Scott Greer, Flowserve’s chairman, president, and CEO. “Many quickly made cash donations while others became volunteers preparing survival kits for the affected areas. Southeast Asia is very important to Flowserve as our operations in the region support many of our largest customers.'

Flowserve reports that it made an initial donation of $50,000 to the Red Cross, and is currently conducting a fundraising drive that will match dollar-for-dollar the first $50,000 donated by its employees.

Flowserve provides fluid motion and control products and services. Operating in 56 countries, the company produces engineered and industrial pumps, seals, and valves, as well as a range of related flow management services.
