"Very strong margins in our 2nd quarter contributed to the strong overall margin performance for the 1st six months of this fiscal year which is the result of both changes in product mix and the benefits of our focus on lean initiatives," stated Tim Sopko, CEO. He further commented, "While sales to our Aerospace/Defense customers returned to expected levels in the 2nd quarter, sales to our Construction customers are being impacted by delays on some larger projects here in the US with tariffs negatively impacting export sales."
