Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company Awarded $25k Grant From Pennsylvania Technical Assistance Program

DOE-Sponsored Program Focuses on Excellence in Energy Management

FALLS CHURCH, VA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2012) - Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company announced today that its EMD business unit, located in Cheswick, PA, was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Technical Assistance Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), to support its efforts to become ISO 50001 certified for excellence in energy management.

Over the years, EMD has aggressively implemented energy management and conservation initiatives. Recently, it applied for a grant through a new DOE-sponsored program called the Pennsylvania Technical Assistance Program, which is administered through Pennsylvania State University. In May, EMD was selected to participate in the Pennsylvania Superior Energy Performance Demonstration project.

"Improving industrial energy efficiency by using energy management best practices and system assessments can strengthen our nation's economy, reduce emissions and ensure greater energy independence," said David Linton, President, Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company and Co-Chief Operating Officer, Curtiss-Wright Corporation. "EMD's participation in the program will position it at the forefront of this exciting program and enable it to take its energy management program to an even higher level."

As a participant, EMD will receive training and other support to implement an energy management program that conforms to ISO 50001. Certification and assessment to the ISO standard will take approximately 18 months to achieve. To date, only 35 companies in the nation have been selected to participate in the certification program.

"We are honored to be selected as a member of this elite group and look forward to applying energy management best practices throughout all of our businesses," said Greg Hempfling, Senior VP & GM of the Electro-Mechanical Systems Division of Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company.
