St. Petersburg, Florida, February 15, 2006 – Flanders Corporation (NASDAQ:FLDR), today announced its results for the year ended December 31, 2005.  Net earnings were $12.5 million or $0.48 per share, up 28% from $9.8 million, or $0.37 per share for 2004.  Revenues for the year were $229 million up 15% from $200 million for 2004.


Steve Clark, President and C.E.O., commented, “We are pleased with this year's performance but see opportunity for improvement as we introduce some of our product lines,  in particular,  our new 'Nested filter'.  We continue to gain market share in each of our product lines and believe that our product offerings will continue to drive market expansion. As we continue to expand our markets and automate our plants we should generate additional cash to fund our advertising initiatives.  Increased volume, automation, and innovative products should lead to increased gross margin. "

Net Sales: Net sales for 2005 increased by $29,343 or 14.7%, to $229,276, from $199,933 for 2004.  The increase in net sales was due to our success in increasing our market share across generally all lines of our business.

Gross Profit:  Gross profit for 2005 increased $4,629 or 9.6%, to $52,917 which made up 23.1% of net sales, from $48,288 for 2004, which made up 24.2% of net sales.  The gross profit increase was principally due to a higher sales volume while the decrease in gross profit percentage was primarily attributable to increases in direct labor, transportation,   raw material costs , and initial costs associated with new product offerings .

Operating Expenses:  Operating expenses for 2005 increased $1,728, or 5.1%, to $35,297, from $33,569 in 2004. The increase in operating expenses was primarily caused by a higher sales volume in 200 5 .  Operating expenses as a percentage of sales decreased in 2005 to 15.4% from 16.8% due primarily to the higher sales volume covering certain fixed overhead costs .

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are inherently subject to risk.  These forward-looking statements are not intended to be promises or predictions of the future and may be affected by a number of factors that may change the currently anticipated outcome.  These factors include market acceptance of Flanders’ products, competition in the marketplace for Flanders' products, the success of retailers and distributors through which Flanders sells its products, Flanders' ability to contain costs and maintain production and efficiency with a reduced workforce, a determination by potential Flanders customers that the higher cost of its high-end filtration systems can be justified for general application, Flanders’ ability to successfully retrofit existing buildings with effective sophisticated filtering and air handling systems, the ability to increase its high end containment products for commercial and governmental settings, the success of Flanders CSD (Flanders Complete Services Division), the ability to continue implementation of vertical integration of our raw material supplies and the  development of increased demand for its high-end products.  Many of these factors are not within Flanders’ control.  These factors, and others, are discussed in Flanders’ periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and should be reviewed by the reader of this press release.
