Our focus on all the aspects of the business, including the balance sheet, has resulted in improvements in inventory turns and reductions in long-term debt that have had positive impacts on cash flow. We are pleased with the production volume gains and profitability achieved and we continue to focus on our sales efforts to build the long-term business at all of our operating divisions.
