First quarter results demonstrate the benefit of our diversification strategy including a more balanced contribution from our three segments to both the top-line and bottom-line. We also continued to demonstrate our commitment to protecting and enhancing the margins in the Commercial Trailer Products segment while extending our reach in the higher margin Diversified Products segment.
