Kevin R.

Net Sales for the three months ended June 30, 2015 increased 8.9% over the same period in 2014.

The Company’s Net Income for the first six months of 2015 was $6,812,000, compared to $5,091,000 during the same period last year, increasing 33.8%. For the quarter, Net Income was up 26.7% over last year.

The Company has experienced steady growth in sales and income over the last several years, and that has continued into 2015. The sales increases have been achieved despite the modest growth in the construction industry, particularly in residential housing. The Company has also been able to expand its current markets by offering innovative products such as its AutoSnap® fitting, which complements the TracPipe® CounterStrike® flexible gas piping products, as well as DoubleTrac® and DEF-Trac® double-containment piping, used in refueling and auxiliary power generation markets. The Company has also experienced growth outside of its North American core market, particularly Europe. The company has also been successful in containing its costs.
