Energy Recovery Inc was incorporated in Virginia in April 1992 and reincorporated in Delaware in March 2001. The Company is engaged in designing, developing, and manufacturing of energy recovery devices that transform untapped energy into reusable energy from industrial fluid flows and pressure cycles. The products are marketed and sold in fluid flow markets, such as desalination and oil and gas, under the trademarks ERI, PX, Pressure Exchanger, and PX Pressure Exchanger. The Company also provide high-performance and high-efficiency pumps to facilitate a packaged solution to its customers. It designs and manufactures ERDs at its facility in San Leandro, California. The Company's water desalination ERDs are categorized into two technology groups: PX energy recovery devices and turbochargers. In the oil and gas market, the Company designs and manufactures complete energy recovery and energy generating systems, that include the lsoBoost, the lsoGen, and the lsoPro. The lsoBoost energy recovery systems are comprised of turbines and industrial pumps. Its lsoGen systems, through the integration of high-efficiency turbines and electric generators, enable oil and gas operators to capture hydraulic energy and generate electricity from high-pressure fluid flows. In addition to its industry-leading products, it provides a portfolio of services tailored to its customers' needs. The Company's customers include international engineering, procurement, and construction firms that design and build large desalination plants and a number of original equipment manufacturers, which are companies that supply equipment and packaged solutions for small- to medium-sized desalination plants. In the oil and gas market, its potential customers include exploration and production companies. The Company has two main competitors for its energy recovery devices: Flowserve Corporation (Flowserve) based in Irving, Texas and Fluid Equipment Development Company (FEDCO) based in Monroe, Michigan. The Company market and sell its products directly to customers through its sales organization and, in some countries, through authorized, independent sales agents.
