communications plans for a Texas industrial equipment company that

became a dollars 2 billion concern when it acquired an Ingersoll-Rand

subsidiary earlier this month.



Sean Clancy joined Flowserve as communications VP the same week the

company took over Ingersoll Dresser Co., which makes pumps. Flowserve,

itself three years old, evolved from the merger of two other companies,

Durco International and BW/IP. Following the recent purchase, Flowserve

now employs about 10,000 people in 30 countries.



Clancy, currently Flowserve’s only PR employee, has been charged with

building an international and domestic communications program. He plans

to hire additional staff and may consider working with an outside PR

firm.



No immediate action is expected, however, since the newly merged company

is in the midst of reorganization.



Still acquainting himself with the new company and job, Clancy said he

won’t firm up communication plans until acquisition activities are

completed.



Some redundant operations may be divested, he noted.



Clancy previously spent two years as Union Carbide’s corporate

communication director, based at the company’s Danbury, CT headquarters.

Before that, he worked in Shandwick’s Louisville office and as public

affairs manager for Rhone-Poulenc Basic Chemicals.
