“As reflected by our consolidated results, Trinity maintained its positive momentum during the second quarter, and we expect this trend to continue throughout the year,” said Timothy R.

We continued to receive orders for products that serve the oil, gas, and chemical industries. The amount of backlog visibility we have in our major businesses provides us opportunities to continue to generate additional operating efficiencies. Our outlook for the future remains positive.”
