Chairman and CEO John Crowe said, "First quarter net sales were up 3% compared to the same period last year. The earnings improvement is a combination of higher prices, better mix and cost control. Nonwovens shipments were especially strong with net sales up 10% compared to the same period last year.” He added that strong cash flow enabled the company to reduce debt by $26 million during the just-completed quarter. Demand for its specialty wood and cotton products, nonwoven materials and fluff pulp reportedly continues to be strong.
