Warren Kruger, CEO, stated, “Our entire organization is delivering on the Company’s goals and producing results that are in line with the expectations laid out in our business plan. The diligence and patience exhibited while working through an extended series of challenges and opportunities is being rewarded. Plastic pallets are more frequently being recognized as a necessity rather than a luxury and our 100% recycled plastic products help the environment while providing sustainable money saving solutions. Growth is coming from a broad range of products with concentrations in the beverage, agriculture, and pharmaceutical industries.” Kruger
continued, “Looking ahead to our corporate fiscal year 2013, we will earnestly continue to build value for our shareholders as I anticipate a double digit increase in revenue from resin sales, current pallet designs and new products and innovations in the pipeline.”
