PRINCETON, NJ, Feb. 6, 2008 -- Tyco Flow Control Pacific, based in Australia, today announced recent acquisitions on behalf of two business units: Water Dynamics and Tyco Pumping Systems. Water Dynamics recently acquired Southwest Water Services and Mackay Pumping and Irrigation as part of a plan to strengthen its irrigation business presence in Queensland, Australia. Tyco Pumping Systems acquired Australian Panel Tanks Ltd. (APT), which will join its existing Encon Modular Tanks division, enhancing strength in the commercial fire market and expanding its range of product offerings.

The two acquired water irrigation companies adds three stores and 48 employees to Tyco's existing Water Dynamics business and network of irrigation locations in the Pacific, extending the distribution for Tyco Flow Controls manufactured products. The business now has 33 stores, two manufacturing plants and more than 300 dedicated employees. Water Dynamics includes irrigation stores and service centers across Australia and New Zealand that specialize in the design, installation and service of smart irrigation systems for using water efficiently in agriculture, managing and conserving stock and dam water, and maximizing watering for landscapes and lawns.

Tyco's acquisition of APT, located in Queensland, Australia, will add 20 personnel to Tyco Pumping Systems across sales, estimating, engineering and production. APT will help to further Tyco 's market leadership in modular tanks throughout the Asia Pacific region. APT is a recognized specialist in above ground circular and rectangular modular-steel tanks for community drinking water, wastewater treatment, fire systems, energy management, power stations, mining and process water.

"We are very pleased to announce these additions to our portfolio as they have great reputations for their high-quality products, experienced staff and outstanding customer service," said Noel Rosskelly, president of Tyco Flow Control Pacific. "The key to our success has been our growing network to become a premiere provider of water services and we are enthusiastic about our expansion and reaching more customers that can benefit from our expertise."
