CECO Chairman and CEO Phillip DeZwirek, announced that orders booked in the first nine months of 2001 were $74.8 million, a record level. This represents an increase of $6.2 million or 9% over last year. September's bookings were $8.7 million compared with $6.9 million in 2000.
Mr. DeZwirek reported, "Orders booked through September 2001 continue to be strong despite the tragic events of September 11, 2001 and general downturn in the economy. At present time, we are weathering this difficult juncture well. We believe that CECO is favorably positioned in the marketplace to get these opportunities for orders due to our size, history and financial strength. We are maintaining our cautious optimism due to our strong inquiry activity level among the Company's Kirk & Blum and CECO Filters units."
