"Our aerospace and land-based gas turbine markets continue to demonstrate solid sales, order entry activity and backlog levels," said Mark Comerford, president and CEO of Haynes. "Our chemical processing and other market categories are experiencing a reluctance by end users to commit to large project-related orders due to the economic turbulence around the world, thereby leading to a reduction in overall order backlog.

"The year-over-year and quarter-to-quarter improving performance in sales, gross margin and profitability is the result of our focused marketing effort, capital investments, new alloy development, initiation of operational improvement programs and focused cost management."
