CEO David Little said, When we analyzed these results, Innovative Pumping Solutions (IPS) had $2.6 million in fabricated jobs that were delayed by supplier lead times and are scheduled to ship in the third quarter. IPS’s Power Machinery (PMI), a high margin specialty pump remanufacturing division, also experienced a slower second quarter but increased its backlog which expect will result in an excellent fourth quarter. DXP Service Center sales were as expected through May with some softening in June.

“Our major markets of oil & gas, mining, chemical, petrochemical, and refining look healthy and therefore the Service Centers are forecasting a 7% increase over the first half of the year. The Service Center team continues to invest in DXP Super Centers through products, services, expanded markets and personnel. We have made substantial investments in sales personnel at the Service Centers, increasing headcount approximately 12%, in efforts to grow our Super Center concept. We feel strong about our growth strategy, the markets we serve and we expect great results for this year and next.”
