President and CEO Gary Yetman stated, "We finished 2012 on a very strong note as our fourth quarter profitability, driven by higher sales and a significant increase in gross profit, exceeded our expectations and contributed to an outstanding year. The year-over-year gross profit improvement during the fourth quarter was fairly broad based with particularly strong performance within our Distribution segment. These factors, coupled with the diversity of our platform and our continued focus on improving our operations, favorably impacted profitability on a year-over-year basis."Mr. Yetman concluded, "Looking to 2013, we anticipate continued growth throughout the year with additional benefits arising in the back half of the year as we start to experience the positive effects of our plant consolidation and expansion efforts which was a focus of ours in 2012. Additionally, though visibility with respect to such an occurrence is limited, we would also significantly benefit in the event of any meaningful and sustained rebound in the residential and commercial construction markets, as we are very well positioned from a capacity and product standpoint to serve any such increased demand in these markets. In short, we remain confident the Company is well positioned heading into 2013."
