Kevin R. Hoben, President and CEO, announced that the Company's results for the first quarter of 2014 improved over 2013, despite the awful weather conditions which stalled construction projects across a large portion of the United States.

Net Sales were slightly better than the prior year, being $16,589,000 and $16,382,000 for the three months ended 2014 and 2013, respectively, representing an increase of 1.3%.

The Company's Net Income for the first three months of 2014 was $2,195,000 compared to $1,582,000 recognized during the same quarter last year, increasing 38.8%. The Company was able to expand the bottom line through improved international operations, the curtailment of expenses, and modest price enhancements.

The first quarter of 2014 saw the release of the Company's new AutoSnap® fitting. With its increased ease of use, allowing installers to save valuable time, it has been in strong demand with our customers. The Company is hopeful that the coming months will recover the balance of the projects delayed due to the winter weather, and gain market share from the continued rollout of this innovative new fitting.
