Delta, BC August 27, 2018 – WestBond Enterprises Corporation has posted a profit of $172,905 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This represents a 197% increase over the profit of $58,282 for the three months ended June 30, 2017. Sales also increased 14.6% to $2,864,740 this year compared to $2,498,878 for the three months ended June 30, 2017.
The increase in sales and net income are due to the company’s efforts to develop new markets for its air laid products and existing clinical and personal hygiene lines. Air laid products and parent roll sales increased significantly in the food service market. WestBond intends to continue to develop these markets and increase profitability by improving production efficiencies and lowering overhead costs.
