Flowserve Corp., an international developer and provider of fluid motion and control products and services, recently invested $8.5 million to open a pump manufacturing facility in Coimbatore, India.

“Expanding our footprint in the Asia-Pacific region continues to be a key part of Flowserve’s growth strategy,” said Lewis Klong, president and CEO. “With the industries we serve growing significantly in the region, this new facility is designed to serve our customers more effectively and offer a technically advanced center for manufacturing.
