“We’re very pleased with our strong growth in revenue and earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2012, driven primarily by the rapid production ramp up for new customer programs,” said Craig Gates, President and Chief Executive Officer, “During the quarter, we achieved the highest quarterly revenue in Key Tronic’s history and significantly increased our operating efficiencies from recent quarters. We also continued to diversify our future revenue base by winning new programs involving irrigation equipment, gaming devices, electric transportation and military equipment.

“Moving into the third quarter, we expect continued strong growth in revenue and earnings. As a result of the increasing recognition of our unique combination of world-class engineering, global logistics and cost-effective production, we’re capturing market share from many of our competitors. As we grow our business, we remain focused on maintaining outstanding customer service, carefully managing our operating expenses and maximizing our return on invested capital.”
