Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Sales in the first quarter of 2020 decreased from the first quarter of last year. Sales in the quarter declined by $24 million or about 8 percent primarily due to lower Water and Fueling Systems sales volumes and foreign currency exchange partially offset by achieved price. The Company's consolidated gross profit was $90.3 million for the first quarter of 2020, an increase from the prior year’s first quarter. The gross profit as a percent of net sales was 33.9 percent in the first quarter of 2020 versus 30.8 percent during the first quarter 2019 and improved primarily due to better price realization and product sales mix.
  • The top priority of the Company is the health and welfare of its employees and partners around the world. In response to the health risks posed by the Global Pandemic, the Company implemented and has been following the recommended hygiene and social distancing practices promulgated by the United States Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.
  • The Company’s products and services are generally viewed as essential in most jurisdictions in which the Company operates. Accordingly, the Company’s global manufacturing and distribution operations generally remain open subject to temporary government mandated closures which have occurred in China, Italy, South Africa, India and several countries in South America. These temporary closures have not had a material impact on the ability to supply products to the Company’s customers.

Motor Drive System Including Removable Bypass Circuit And/or Cooling Features
4 Jun 20
A motor control system to drive an alternating-current (AC) motor, including a motor drive with a power circuit and a motor drive controller powered by the power circuit and configured to cause the power circuit to generate a motor voltage; a motor drive contactor having first contacts electrically connected between the power circuit and the AC motor; a bypass contactor having second contacts electrically connected between a line voltage source and the AC motor; and a bypass controller communicatively coupled with the motor drive contactor and the bypass contractor; wherein the motor drive controller is structured to generate a speed reference and to command the bypass controller to connect the AC motor to the line voltage source upon the motor drive controller determining that the speed reference is substantially equal to a line frequency of the line voltage source.
