The Springfield, Massachusetts-based company reported third-quarter net sales of $162 million, up 2% from a year earlier. Net income was $8.9 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared with $4.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share.

"Our third-quarter results reflect year-over-year increases in revenue and operating profit,” CEO James Debney said in a statement, citing progress at the company’s new logistics and customer services facility in Missouri.

Gross margin for the quarter was 33.4%, compared with 29.8% a year ago.

Based on long-term sales forecasts for its Electro-Optics operating unit, the company said it decided to restructure and combine that business with its Outdoor Products & Accessories operating unit to drive efficiencies and increase operating performance.
