For the first nine months of fiscal 2010, sales were $65,272,000, compared to $64,667,000 for the first nine months of fiscal 2009, an increase of 1%.

In commenting on the results, Louis LeCalsey, Tufco's President and CEO said, "Quarter three 2010 revenues are positive to last year but significantly below pre-recession levels. While our revenues increased in the third fiscal quarter compared to last year, our earnings did not, primarily as a result of changes in our product mix and costs associated with new sales and marketing initiatives. We expect our new sales and marketing initiatives to show improving results in upcoming quarters."   

Tufco, headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, has manufacturing operations in Wisconsin and North Carolina.
