"There are bright spots within certain sectors, but overall choppiness in the industrial economy continues to frustrate us," said Michael L. Molinini, president and CEO. "As uncertainty persists, we will remain focused on the things that we can control, including leveraging the SAP system, managing expenses, expanding our telesales business, and enhancing our e-business platform, and are ready to capitalize when sustained growth in the industrial economy resumes."
