GREEN BAY, Wis., Feb. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tufco Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:TFCO), a leading provider of branded contract wet and dry wipes converting in North America and a leader in specialty printing services and business imaging products, today announced that its sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, which ended December 31, 2010, were $24,161,000, up 21% from sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. Net loss per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $0.04 per share compared to $0.03 net loss per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.
In commenting on the results, Louis LeCalsey, Tufco's President and CEO said, "Though we are showing significant sales growth, that number is impacted as our product mix has a larger materials content and the pass through of these material costs, while increasing sales, does not increase profitability."
"We see demand increasing in Contract Manufacturing from both existing customers and new customers. Our expanded product and service offerings as well as our targeted new market channels are showing positive results.""In Business Imaging, we are concentrating on, and executing the expansion of our customer base. We are seeing an increase in paper pricing coupled with competitive supply increases, creating pricing pressure in the face of higher cost." Tufco, headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, has manufacturing operations in Wisconsin and North Carolina.

This press release, including the discussion of the Company's fiscal 2011 results in comparison to fiscal 2010 contains forward-looking statements regarding current expectations, risks and uncertainties for future periods.
