&nbsp ;
Industrial Segment
First quarter fiscal 2008 Industrial segment sales increased 32% to $137 million. Excluding currency translation and acquisitions, Industrial segment core sales grew 11% driven by continued strong global demand in both the joint integrity and high-force hydraulic tool product lines.
&nbsp ;
Electrical Segment
Electrical segment sales increased 10% to $134 million due to favorable foreign currency exchange rate changes and the acquisition of BH Electronics (July 2007). Core sales declined 3% due primarily to the impact of weaker European demand and lower OEM transformer sales.
&nbsp ;
Actuation Systems Segment
Actuation Systems segment sales increased 7% to $113 million. Core sales grew 1% in the quarter as increased demand from the company’s recreational vehicle and European and Asian truck customers was partially offset by declines in both the automotive and North American truck markets.
&nbsp ;
The decline in North American truck was the result of the prior year emissions related pre-buy, while automotive sales declined due to new platform launches in the prior year.
&nbsp ;
Engineered Products Segment
Engineered Products segment sales increased to $31 million from $11 million in the prior year reflecting both 19% core sales growth and the acquisition of Maxima in December 2006.
&nbsp ;
Actuant is a diversified industrial company with operations in more than 30 countries.
