CERRITOS, CA, Oct. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. is pleased to announce approximately $792,000 US ($890,000 CAD) in new orders. Of these orders, approximately 47% are in the Specialty Automotive division, 46% are in the Aerospace division, 4% are in the Military division and 3% are in the Sports and Recreation division.
The Company is also pleased to note that these contracts include orders from two major U.S. military customers. One of these contracts is related to the successful completion of the first article approval process that was conducted at Omni-Lite's facilities in early October 2014.
The Company has recently received a third quarter supplier scorecard from Alcoa Fastening Systems (AFS) that had a perfect record for both quality and delivery. "The continuation of the high supplier rating achieved from Alcoa is helping to deepen the relationship between Alcoa and Omni-Lite. This is leading to an increasing workload, for Omni-Lite, from this large Aerospace company," stated Allen Maxin, President.
To undertake several projects contemplated in the future, the Company has recently confirmed the purchase of the large seven station progressive forging system mentioned in the press release of September 2, 2014. This system will be the most sophisticated at Omni-Lite, with five of the seven dies modified with the OD-Plus System, which provides for the opening and closing of the forging tooling, in real time, under high pressure. "This enhanced capability will allow the Company to seek new opportunities from the U.S. Military and our Tier One military customers. In addition, this complex system will support a new development project for another clean diesel application," stated Michael Walker, VP of Research and Development. "This equipment has a value of approximately $725,000 US and should be delivered to Omni-Lite in the third quarter of 2015. The Company has filed a U.S. Patent for the OD-PLUS System."
On the financial side, Omni-Lite is pleased to announce that it has made the last payment on its outstanding debt on October 23, 2014. "The Company is again debt free," stated Tim Wang, CFO.
