Quoting Management: “Our results for the quarter reflect continuing sluggish European and Asian markets where order and sales levels remain somewhat weaker than expected. In the Americas, order volume in the quarter was particularly strong, up 25% year-over-year. As expected, competition has intensified in tight markets. Our overarching goals are to remain the industry leader and grow sales and earnings in all market conditions. As such, in the first quarter of 2013 we made additional investments in sales and marketing personnel to aggressively grow product and service revenue, and expanded our research & development teams to accelerate new product development,” stated Jay Freeland, President and Chief Executive Officer.
