The Company has seen steady growth in sales and income in each respective year since 2010, after persevering through the economic downturn, which was particularly tough on our construction related interests. While the economy and in particular the housing sector has still not seen building attain the levels achieved during its peak, the Company has indeed managed to reach historical heights in sales and profitability this year. From its inception, the Company has looked to expand its market share by introducing innovative products, starting with highly successful products such as TracPipe® gas piping, and the AutoFlare® fitting. In 2011, the Company transformed the flexible gas piping market by exclusively offering the highly advanced and lightning resistant TracPipe® CounterStrike® product within the United States. Most recently the Company introduced the industry’s most progressive fitting, AutoSnap®, another unique product which improves the speed and ease of installation. Additionally, the Company has focused on diversification by utilizing new products, markets and territories. This is being achieved through the addition of new products such as DoubleTrac® and DEF-Trac® double-containment piping systems, used in refueling and auxiliary power generation markets, and by international expansion.
