“We are pleased to report higher sales, stronger profit margins and continued profitability, despite the economy’s slow recovery,” said Command Center Chairman and CEO, Glenn Welstad. “Because of our commitment and ability to provide superior customer service across many different sectors, the company has been able to expand its customer base on both the local and national level.”
Mr. Welstad noted that the increase in SG&A expenses during the third quarter was related primarily to increases in compensation and travel activities, as well as additional costs associated with new branch office openings and expansion into high growth areas such as Bakken Staffing and restoration services.
Command Center is currently active with disaster relief and recovery efforts on the East Coast following Hurricane Sandy. According to Mr. Welstad, this work is expected to have a positive impact on fourth quarter operating results. “Command Center is uniquely qualified to mobilize large numbers of workers to service these types of opportunities, and they have become increasingly important as catalysts for our growth.”
