"Sales this quarter and YTD are significantly lower than this period last year with earnings likewise lower but not as low as they would have otherwise been due to the federal aid we received as an incentive to keep employees hired during the pandemic," stated Tim Sopko, CEO. He further commented, "The accelerated progress made on our Continuous Improvement initiatives during this time of lower business volume positions us well to execute more efficiently at higher business volumes as our markets rebound from the negative impacts of the virus." He concluded, "While it remains to be seen how the impacts of the pandemic will play out on our path forward, booking activity has been on the rise this past quarter with YTD bookings almost $3,000,000 better than this time last year, which is encouraging."
The company's firm order backlog is $18,800,000 at the end of February as compared to $14,600,000 at this time last year.
