"In the first quarter of 2013, sales grew to $49.6 million, which is 30.1% over prior year. Improved market conditions during the quarter, and sales and marketing programs focused on our WinGuard products, drove this dramatic increase in top-line sales," said PGT's President and Chief Executive Officer, Rod Hershberger.
Mr. Hershberger continued, "During the quarter, impact sales grew 39% over prior year and represented 77% of total sales, compared to 72% a year ago.

The increase in sales, and the gain recorded on the Salisbury, NC facility of $2.0 million after tax, resulted in an increase in net income to $5.3 million compared to a loss of $0.7 million a year ago. The improvement in financial performance is the result of the hard work and dedication of our employees, including the 159 new employees who have joined us since the first of the year, to satisfy the growing demand for our product, and to deliver on our value proposition."Our financial highlights for the first quarter ended March 30, 2013, compared to the same period last year, include:
