Kevin R. Hoben, President and CEO, indicated the Company’s 1st Quarter Revenues were down $908,000 (5.2%) from Revenues in the 1st Quarter 2007, but Net Income improved $197,000 (10.5%) over the same period.


Revenue for the three-months ended March 31, 2008 reflects continued weakness in the residential construction industry, which was offset somewhat by gains in market share in residential, non-residential and international construction markets. Net income for the three-months ended March 31, 2008 rose primarily as a result of improved margins related to decreased material costs, and to a lesser extent certain administrative costs.
