For the third quarter of 2010, Nortech Systems reported net income of $127,000, or $0.05 per diluted common share. This compares with a net loss of $854,000, or $0.31 per diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2009.

Nortech Systems reported net sales of $72.4 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2010. This compares with $60.1 million for the same period in 2009, an increase of 20 percent.

“We’re encouraged by the overall trends and pleased to report our fourth consecutive quarter of rising sales and backlog levels,” said Mike Degen, president and CEO of Nortech Systems. “Customer confidence is returning across our core markets with sales in the quarter up 39 percent over 2009 levels.” He added that the company’s 90-day backlog position improved 10 percent during the third quarter of 2010, and is up 65 percent from Sept. 30, 2009.

Degen said that increased sales volumes, combined with continued cost-management and lean manufacturing initiatives, are having positive impacts on gross margins and profitability.
