Item 8.01 Other Events.

On October 11, 2010, Circor International, Inc. issued a press release announcing that on October 8, 2010, its wholly owned subsidiary, Leslie Controls, Inc. (“Leslie”), obtained the asbestos claimant votes necessary for approval of its pre-negotiated Chapter 11 reorganization plan filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in July 2010. For the plan to be confirmed and affirmed by the courts, the U.S. Bankruptcy Code requires a formal vote of approval by at least 75 percent of current asbestos claimants. The solicitation process for this approval was completed on September 27, 2010, and on October 8, 2010, the balloting agent tabulating the votes filed a declaration with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware stating that the percentage cast in favor of the plan significantly exceeded this requirement. The approval of the asbestos claimants represents a key step in the process toward Leslie’s emergence from bankruptcy.

A copy of the press release, which includes further details about the approval obtained by Leslie from the asbestos claimants, is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
