Superior Uniform Group, Inc. (Seminole, Fla.), manufacturer of uniforms, career apparel and accessories, today announced that for the second quarter ended June 30, 2005, sales were down slightly ($34,858,915) compared with the same period of last year ($35,400,090). Net income was $646,533 compared with net income of $1,277,333 in the 2004 second quarter.
"During the first quarter of 2005, the difficulties that we experienced with the implementation of our upgraded warehouse were very tough on the company and on our customers,” commented Michael Benstock, chief executive officer. “While we were able to correct the operational problems at the beginning of the second quarter, our sales results were impacted as certain customers reduced their volume of business at that time. We recognize that this has resulted in a loss of certain business in the short-term, but we believe that this upgrade in warehouse technology will help to keep our company in the forefront of distribution technology and will give us the competitive advantage that we need to better service our customers in a very competitive marketplace in the future.”
