HEMET, CA, Feb. 7, 2006 -- Demonstrating a 50-year commitment to providing world-class products, services and support to its worldwide customers, McCrometer is pleased to announce its new Asia Pacific Office in Perth, Western Australia and the appointment of David Splatt as regional sales manager.

Splatt will oversee McCrometer's regional flow meter sales for both the oil & gas and process industries. He'll report to Tom Swihart, director of industrial sales worldwide.

Splatt brings to his new role both sales and technical experience in the Oil & Gas, Refining, Petrochemicals, Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Power, Metals & Mining, Food & Beverage, and Commercial Energy/HVAC industries. His experience, combined with an extensive background in flow metering, application solutions, commissioning, DCS and control instrumentation, brings key benefits to McCrometer's Asia Pacific customers and partners.

"We are excited to recruit David Splatt, a highly-regarded member of our Australian partner, Tyco Flow Control, since 1997 to his new role. David will be helping our Asia Pacific customers and partners to solve complex flow metering problems," said Tom Swihart, Director of Industrial Sales Worldwide. "David's deep process instrumentation field and management experience makes a major contribution to our Asia Pacific capabilities. His domain expertise was honed in the trenches. He managed a flow test facility, DCS engineering and configuration, and field commissioning as well as sales and technical personnel. David Splatt's proven track record in Oil & Gas, Refining, Petrochemicals, Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Power, Metals & Mining, Food & Beverage, and Commercial Energy/HVAC industries is key to our mission. David will assist McCrometer's Asia Pacific sales team to do what McCrometer does best -- develop innovative flow measurement solutions for the real world," Swihart added.

Splatt began his career with Fischer and Porter in the late 1970s as an Instrument Technician, working his way up to the position of Western Australian Manager before leaving in 1997. For the last eight years David has served as the Western Australian instrumentation Product Coordinator for McCrometer's Australian representative, Tyco Flow Control. He has built an excellent technical and customer support reputation by providing training and technical sales support for Tyco's sales representatives and clients.
