Tulsa, OK, Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (OTCQB:GLGI).  Tulsa-based Greystone Logistics, Inc. reports record sales and income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Sales for the three months ended August 31, 2017 were $10,287,075 compared to $7,844,261 in prior year ending August 31, 2016 for an increase of $2,442,814, a 31% increase.  Sales to Greystone’s major customers for the quarter ending August 31, 2017, were 73% of total sales compared to 66% in the same period last year. Greystone’s net income was $530,282 for the quarter ending August 31, 2017 compared to $27,008.  Greystone recorded net income attributable to common stockholders for the quarter ending August 31, 2017 of $374,708, or $.01 per share, compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(117,439), or $(0.00) per share in the prior year quarter.

Warren Kruger CEO stated, “Our board is pleased with the results of the first quarter ended August 31, 2017.  I credit the hard work of the entire organization for their continued diligence and high performance. Much of the increase in sales during this quarter was demand for pallets being manufactured and sold to a lease pool customer that rents the pallets in the U.S. and Canada.  During the quarter, one new machine was placed into production to accommodate growing demand for Greystone’s products. Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey will cause short-term upward pressure on polyethylene pricing including the recycled market. We expect this increased movement to abate when normal polyethylene production comes back on line. ”

Greystone Logistics is a "Green" manufacturing company that reprocesses and sells recycled plastic and designs, manufactures, sells high quality 100% recycled plastic pallets that provide logistical solutions needed by a wide range of industries such as the food and beverage, automotive, chemical, pharmaceutical and consumer products.
