Powder orders remained strong in the quarter and increased margins on powder sales resulted in positive results for the quarter. Sales and production traditionally decrease in the current quarter as the quarter covers our regular shutdown and maintenance. The company continues to invest in equipment in an effort to ensure sustainable production. Investment and repairs to equipment are over $300,000 year to date. Product registrations activity also continues targeting markets in the United States, Europe and the Far East although regulatory approval cannot be determined.

Interest in new non-regulated products also remain strong and customer audits continue.

“We are pleased with the results for this 3rd quarter,” said George Usher, President and CEO of Polydex. “We have been focusing on powdered production for some time and will continue to do so in the future. We expect continued investment and upgrades to equipment will further help with output.  Additionally, we are pleased to have a strong balance sheet with good cash reserves to protect future production.”
