Industrial distributor MSC Industrial Direct Co. Inc. (NYSE: MSM), Melville, NY, reported sales of $828.3 million for its fiscal third quarter, ended June 2--an 11 percent increase compared to the year-ago period. Quarterly profit was $79 million, a 26 percent increase compared with the third quarter last year.
A healthy manufacturing environment and sustained pricing helped drive the results, president and CEO Erik Gershwind said. The results reflect costs related to MSC’s recent acquisition of AIS, announced in May.
