Since the founding of our oldest product brand in 1790, Flowserve and our legacy companies have been committed to our employees and customers. Throughout our 230-year history, Flowserve and our customers have overcome many challenges together. And today, during this global pandemic, our commitment is no different. First and foremost, our focus is on the health and safety of our more than 17,000 associates, while at the same time living out our purpose statement as part of our commitment to our customers and the communities we serve. That purpose joins together our associates across 55 countries under one common goal:
Wherever possible, our people continue to provide the products and services to companies that are responsible for supporting our communities. Flowserve is supporting our power generation customers to keep the lights on. Our oil and gas customers to ensure they can provide energy for transportation services and our petro-chemical customers who provide material for critical medical and consumer needs.
We know there are still challenging times ahead of us all, but rest assured that Flowserve will continue to be there for our customers just as we have been for more than two centuries.
