Comments from Chris Koch, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
"Reflecting on the past twelve months of uncertainty, I take great pride in how the Carlisle team handled the immediate threats born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that strict health and safety protocols were in place and followed, which has led to a low infection rate at Carlisle across the globe. This reaction enabled an early, proactive focus on positioning our businesses for an economic rebound, with Vision 2025 providing the clear direction and consistency of mission to guide our efforts. We will leverage this momentum as we accelerate into the recovery in 2021 and beyond. One year removed from the pandemic's initial impact, we believe we are a stronger company and are well positioned to meet our center-led Vision 2025 objectives, supported by confidence in the fundamentals of our businesses and our commitment to our customers through the Carlisle Experience.
Due to strength in our CCM, CFT, and CBF businesses, our consolidated first quarter revenue was flat, while adjusted EPS declined year-over-year given lower profitability at CIT driven by the well-publicized impact of the COVID pandemic on the commercial aerospace industry. The first quarter of 2021 demonstrated yet again Carlisle's ability to navigate varying economic cycles while delivering strong financial performance. We continued to execute on our long-term strategies, including: maintaining the highest standards in providing the Carlisle Experience to our customers, investing in high-return projects to drive organic growth across our core platforms, working an active pipeline of acquisition targets, returning capital to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends, continuing on our ESG journey, and demonstrating the exceptional and sustainable earnings power of the Carlisle business model.

This is highlighted by the inclement weather experienced in North America in February only temporarily impacting sales at CCM, with March volumes more than offsetting during the quarter.
On April 20th, Carlisle announced plans to invest more than $60 million to build an innovative, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Sikeston, Missouri. Consistent with Carlisle’s strategy to invest in high-returning businesses, the plant will support organic growth initiatives and also create jobs for the city of Sikeston and surrounding communities. The building will be constructed in accordance with the latest advances in LEED building and ESG principles. Additionally, we expect that this central location will both reduce the carbon footprint of CCM’s supply chain and improve material lead times for customers in this region where the use of insulation in the building envelope is steadily increasing. At this new facility, CCM will manufacture energy-efficient polyiso insulation, which not only lowers energy costs for building owners and operators, but also helps reduce a building’s GHG emissions.
While CCM generated most of our earnings in the first quarter of 2021, our smaller businesses exhibited significant progress. CIT's results were in line with subdued expectations given the ongoing disruption in the commercial aerospace market.
