Net sales increased 5% seq. for Kimball EMS

Fiscal year 2011 third quarter net sales in the EMS segment increased 5% over the third quarter of the prior year with increased net sales to customers in the medical and industrial control industries partially offset by declines in net sales to customers in the automotive and public safety industries.
James C. Thyen, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, “[...] Our EMS segment enjoyed record sales in the third quarter, as our long-term customer relationships and our ability to execute to the highest quality and reliability expectations in the industry continues to drive our success. The record sales translated to significant improvement in our EMS segment third quarter operating profit over the first half of this fiscal year. Winning new projects in all markets remains intensely competitive, and as expected continues to put pressure on our margins.”

Mr. Thyen concluded, “Looking forward, we are closely monitoring our EMS customers and suppliers affected by the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan. While we have experienced minimal disruption in our supply chain to this point, we have been informed by some suppliers of possible component shortages in the near future. On the customer side, we are seeing some reduction in our order requirements over the next quarter. The short-term outlook is very fluid. Once suppliers regain full capacity and capability, we anticipate there will be increased demand to recover the lost production.”
