Management considers the quarter’s results satisfactory under the circumstances of the Covid Pandemic which hit Europe in Q1. This affected European and Asian orders as the global economy slowed significantly.

In April we implemented our pandemic plan and closed the plant for two weeks. During this time we developed reduced hours or working from home programs and increased sanitation plans for the facility. We restarted mid-month and our programs appear to be working well. Raw Materials have become a concern with some instability of delivery. We are in regular communication with suppliers to monitor the situation.

The immediate future looks brighter with increased orders for Q2.

“We have never experienced anything like this before,” said George Usher, President and CEO, adding “Despite a sudden worldwide reduction in demand, we have managed to stay operational and profitable. We are pleased to see that global markets are cautiously emerging from pandemic shutdowns, and our orders and sales are now resuming. “
