Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “2022 was an excellent year for both growth and profits. It is a testament to the quality of our employees that we were able to execute so well.” Mr. O’Brien adds, “It was not an easy year. We had to contend with high input prices, inflation and shipping costs – all of which affected our margins. We expect 2023 to bring its own problems for us to surmount. Our estimation for 2023 is continued growth in revenue, cash flow and profit but we are not yet able to predict which quarters will be the most positive.”
