Salvatore Emma, Jr., the Company's President and CEO, commented, "The Company has a significant opportunity for revenue growth from sales of orthopedic implant components. Shipments of these components increased dramatically in the third quarter, and further increases are expected in the fourth quarter and into 2014. The Company will continue to dedicate its financial resources to increase its production capabilities while targeting new leads in this multi-billion dollar market. The market for orthopedic implants is growing rapidly worldwide and the company has unique expertise in quick-turn patient specific implant components.
"During the third quarter, the Company also realized increases in its custom injection molding business. These increases are due to strong demand in medical, defense, and automotive markets. Plastic injection molded products sales have increased with the launch of new customer programs in the second half of the year. The Company also expects to see growth in the fourth quarter of 2013 and into 2014. The company has also started to manufacture and ship components used by law enforcement and military which hold excellent potential for growth in the less-than-lethal ammunition market.
"The Company is working on opportunities to regain market share in sensor products. Significant improvements in process, quality, service, and product performance have started to yield positive results. Increases in sensor volume are expected in the fourth quarter and into 2014 due to a steady increase in global demand as well as new programs with existing customers. The Company will continue its investments in research and development of new sensor technology."
