J. Ward McConnell Jr., Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors said, “Art’s Way Manufacturing outstanding results in 2010 reflect strong execution of our strategy as we achieved annual revenue growth of 10% and income growth of 38%. Operationally, we successfully integrated our acquisitions, which contributed to recognizing revenue. Art’s Way Scientific – Buildings For Science - saw significant growth as companies and universities found alternative funding for their laboratories and scientific buildings when the government stimulus funds were not distributed or not distributed in an expeditious manner.
“Looking forward, the global agricultural sector is in turmoil which provides an outstanding opportunity for North American farmers. As the economy continues to shows signs of recovery, the North American agricultural sector is robust, our business fundamentals remain exceptionally strong and we believe the Company is well positioned to aggressively move forward into 2011 and beyond.
“I want to thank all of our dedicated and hard working employees and our loyal shareholders for their support.”
