Mr. David O’Neil, President and CEO, commented,
“I am very proud of our team. Their efforts resulted in higher sales, higher net income and increases in new orders when compared to the prior year. We responded and delivered positive results in a difficult business environment. Good progress was made on outstanding issues on specific contracts which previously impeded our ability to ship or complete milestone deliverables in the prior year.
"Our labor challenges stabilized in the second half of the year. Filling vacancies and several changes to company leadership positions throughout the facility over the course of the year, has brought a renewed sense of team energy and collaboration. During the second half of the year, the team focused on strategies to improve bottom line results including controlling exposure to unfunded contract costs, as well as inflationary cost increases brought on by ongoing global events and supply chain disruptions. These disruptions are expected to continue including part shortages, increased lead times and unprecedented inflation.
"We will continue to work together as a team and with our customers and suppliers to resolve issues timely and deliver the best results possible.”
