SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Dec. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Paul Mueller Company (Pink Sheets:MUEL) announced today that all domestic production facilities would remain open throughout the holiday season in order to support customer commitments and its ongoing workload. This includes manufacturing facilities in Springfield, Missouri, and Osceola, Iowa. Domestic operations will observe employee holidays: Thursday, December 23rd, Friday, December 24th, Thursday, December 30th, and Friday, December 31st.

European manufacturing facilities in Lichtenvoorde, The Netherlands, will close as scheduled for two weeks during the holidays. Business remains strong for the European operations; therefore, the European sales and service organizations will be in full operation during the holidays. As Paul Mueller Company closes out 2010, domestic operations are experiencing a modest increase in new bookings.

Since February, 2010, Paul Mueller Company has increased its domestic production personnel by over 48% in its Osceola facility, and approximately 25% in the Springfield facilities. The Company expects to enter 2011 with a higher global backlog of approximately 11% as compared to the beginning of 2010.
