E. J. Elliott, Gencor's Chairman, stated, "The Company's EPS doubled in the quarter, despite a drop in revenues. Our initiatives to increase margins through automation, production improvements and lower material costs should continue to positively impact gross margins. Sales were disappointing and reflect the lack of conviction the highway construction industry has on federal and state funding commitments. Gencor continues to look for opportunities to expand its product line through research and development and strategic acquisitions."
Gencor Industries is a diversified, heavy machinery manufacturer for the production of highway construction materials, synthetic fuels and environmental control machinery and equipment used in a variety of applications.
