Flanders names new auditors

Air filtration products manufacturer Flanders Corp has appointed Grant Thornton LLP as its independent auditors replacing Pender Newkirk & Co LLP.

Grant Thornton will issue a report on Flanders Corp's financial statements for fiscal 2010.

“Changing auditors is not a decision we have taken lightly. Pender Newkirk have been our auditors for some time and we have had a very positive relationship with them,” said John Oakley, Flanders Corp's president and CFO. “Given the recent move of our headquarters to North Carolina, we felt that this move was appropriate.”
