“Despite ongoing challenges from COVID-19, we
well and delivered on strong demand for home furnishing products during our second quarter as we reported sales growth of 16% and organic sales growth of 26% compared to the prior year quarter, with growth in virtually all product categories,” said Jerry Dittmer, President and CEO of Flexsteel Industries.
“We enter the third quarter with strong sales momentum and a record high backlog. Global supply chain disruptions remain a significant near-term challenge due to constrained ocean container availability and material and labor shortages, but we are investing aggressively to expand our supply chain capabilities and inventories to best support our customers and the robust consumer demand for furniture. We recently signed a new building lease in Juarez, Mexico for an additional manufacturing plant which will add incremental manufacturing capacity in late third quarter. I remain confident in our ability to profitably grow the company in 2021 while accelerating strategic investments to drive long-term profitable growth and improve our customers’ experience.”
