Elliott, Gencor's Chairman, stated, "The road building industry in the United States continued to languish in 2010 under the current economic conditions and lack of funding both at the federal and state government levels. There has been no concerted effort by Congress and the current administration towards renewal of the traditional 6 year Highway Bill. This lack of a multi-year bill combined with the downturn in the economy, have resulted in decreased revenues for the quarter and year ended September 30, 2010, and under these conditions, sales opportunities that do arise are subject to severe competition and lower margins."
Mr. Elliott went on to say, "We continue to review our internal processes and related cost structure, taking all action as necessary to preserve our strong balance sheet in light of the current economic downturn. In the long term, our strategy to continue investing in product engineering and development and to focus on high quality products and superior customer service will strengthen our market position. We also continue to evaluate opportunities to expand our existing businesses, either through organic growth, or acquisition opportunities."Gencor Industries is a diversified heavy machinery manufacturer for the production of highway construction materials, synthetic fuels and environmental control machinery and equipment used in a variety of applications.
