Sales increased $770,815.00 or 14.84% and margins increased from 7.8% to 24.3% over those reported at fiscal 2013 year-end. Starting the year with a strong backlog for product resulted in steadily growing revenues throughout fiscal 2014. EBITDA reversed from a loss of $200,463 in fiscal 2013 to a gain of $837,645.

With the increased sales, management directed the enhancement of several key operating components of the manufacturing facility, including upgrades to the production equipment and installation of new purification equipment. A sustained focus on upgrades to facilities is planned for the current fiscal year 2015 in order to meet the growing demand.

Continued interest in our products has resulted in several customer audits of our manufacturing facilities and procedures this year, resulting in further new business and augmenting the company's already growing business from long-term customers.

President and CEO George Usher is pleased that continued focus on high quality production "has resulted in growing sales throughout the year, as we had expected," adding that "interest in our products remains strong and we plan to pursue continued growth in sales in the coming year as well."
