Dayton Superior Corp., Dayton, OH, provider of specialized products for the non-residential concrete construction market, reported sales for the third quarter ended Sept. 28, 2007, were $131 million, down from $132 million in the prior-year period. Profit was $386,000 versus a net loss of $342,000 in the previous year.
Sales of Dayton Superior's concrete construction-related products increased 4% to $112 million, stemming both from higher selling prices and higher unit volume. Equipment rental revenues decreased 10% to $15 million and revenues from sales of used rental equipment also declined, both reflecting a lower level of non-residential construction activity, particularly in Florida, and in the Baltimore/Washington and Philadelphia metropolitan areas.
For the first nine months of 2007, Dayton Superior had a net loss of $3 million on sales of $367 million.
Dayton Superior supplies specialized products consumed in non-residential, concrete construction, and is the largest concrete forming and shoring rental company serving the domestic, non-residential construction market.
