For the first award, Frost & Sullivan honored Flowserve as its 2006 North American Growth Excellence in Customer Value Leadership recipient in the pumps solutions market space. This award recognized Flowserve for its superior customer-centric business solutions and market-leading customer satisfaction. Frost & Sullivan noted that Flowserve has continued to expand its customer base by consistently addressing critical customer challenges and providing a one-stop shop for a complete range of dependable, reliable and cost-effective flow control products and solutions.
"Backed by sound technical expertise and a continuous focus on innovation, Flowserve has grown by delivering consistent customer value in a highly fragmented, competitive, and price-sensitive market space," said Dushyant Mehra, research analyst, Frost & Sullivan.

With the second award, Flowserve was honored as the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Global Vertical Market Penetration Leadership Award recipient for its market-oriented and strategic approach to offering highly reliable and efficient pump systems to the oil and gas industry.
