  • $4,211,000 (20.9%) primarily due to the acquisitions of Fastrac and Serenity. The Construction Materials segment reported a small decrease in sales of $399,000 (5.6%) not including approximately $7,156,000 of 2018 former intercompany sales to the ready-mix business that was sold in the first quarter of 2019.
  • The consolidated gross profit ratio in 2019 was 21.7% compared to 22.7% for 2018.
