Management Discussion
  • Net sales were $651,286 for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $818,166 for the year ended December 31, 2019, a decrease of 20.4%. The decrease in our revenue stream was largely attributable to chassis supply chain issues, shutdown periods due to soft demand, and health and safety-related adjustments to operations, all attributable to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Net domestic sales decreased during the period from $697,002 to $556,540, and net foreign sales decreased from $121,164 to $94,746 during the same period. Net sales in the fourth quarter were $178,337, which reflected continued recovery from the pandemic impacted level of $128,529 in the second quarter of the year.
  • Costs of operations decreased 20.6% to $572,928 for the year ended December 31, 2020 from $721,678 for the year ended December 31, 2019. Overall, costs of operations as a percentage of net sales decreased from 88.2% for the year ended December 31, 2019 to 88.0% for the year ended December 31, 2020, primarily due to differences in product mix.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2020 decreased to $39,714 from $43,394 for the year ended December 31, 2019, primarily due to decreases in travel related expenses and other professional fees. As a percentage of net sales, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to 6.1% for 2020 from 5.3% for 2019, primarily due to fixed period costs relative to reduced sales levels.
