Tufco Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:TFCO), a leading North American manufacturer of wet and dry wipes, and provider of specialty printing services and business imaging products, today announced that its sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, which ended December 31, 2011, were $25,676,600, up 6% from sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011. Net loss per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $0.14 compared to $0.04 net loss per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2011.

In commenting on the results, Jim Robinson, Tufco's President and CEO said, "The major contributor to our sales growth was increased seasonal demand within our Newton Business Imaging segment. However, this segment has experienced escalating paper and operating costs, which resulted in reduced gross margin. At Green Bay, reduced sales volume and shifts in our product sales mix and related operating inefficiencies resulted in reduced gross margin. Also, Green Bay relocated its warehouse operation from a third party warehouse to a self-operated warehouse. Savings from this move will begin in the second quarter and continue thereafter."

"We are focused on increasing sales volume, improving sales product mix, new product development and cost reduction activities. Some activities will result in one-time expenses, but increased profitability in the long-term," he concluded.

Tufco, headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, has manufacturing operations in Wisconsin and North Carolina.
