Net Earnings Up for the Year

Looking Forward

The 2009 sales levels represent a record year for the company, despite the current economic crisis. Sales of short-line equipment continue to do well, however, a decline in overseas tractor sales is anticipated and as a result, sales are expected to be lower in 2010.
