WASHINGTON, NC – March 16, 2009 –

Flanders Corporation (NASDAQ: FLDR) reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2008.

Flanders Corporation’s president and CEO, Harry Smith, said: “2008 was an outstanding year of improvement, as we executed programs to increase efficiencies and reduce costs. We installed a more experienced management team, exited non-core businesses, consolidated facilities, optimized production, shortened lead-times, improved on-time delivery to 99% and lowered headcount. These changes strengthened the company both financially and operationally, although we were not immune to the difficult economic climate. 2008 revenue was $217.3 million, compared to $244.9 million in 2007, reflecting disposition of direct sales offices, decreases in retail orders, and reduced capital spending by semiconductor and construction companies. However, our turnaround actions yielded significant productivity improvements, especially shedding sales offices and other businesses. As a result, we lowered our net loss by $15.6 million, to $4.1 million for 2008.”

“We are excited about our recent successes. In October 2008, we received a Blanket Order Agreement (BOA) Subcontract related to the Shaw AREVA MOX facility located in Aiken, SC. In February 2009, we won our inaugural order for glove boxes. Also, in 2009 retail customers have reacted positively to our faster delivery time and better customer service. Flanders continues to lead innovation in the air filtration industry.”
