Alpha Pro Tech a leading manufacturer of products designed to protect people, products and environments, including disposable protective apparel and building products, announced its financial results for the first quarter 2008, the period ended March 31, 2008.

Consolidated sales for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008 decreased 16.8% to $7.5 million from $9.0 million in the comparable quarter in 2007. Sales for the Disposable Protective Apparel segment for the quarter decreased 17.2% to $4.5 million compared to $5.4 million for the same period of 2007.

The Infection Control segment sales for the quarter decreased 28.2% to $1.4 million compared to $2.0 million for the same period of 2007. The Extended Care segment sales were down 22% to $266,000 from $341,000 in the year-ago period. Engineered Products segment sales for the quarter increased by 3.3% to $1.4 million compared to $1.3 million for the same period of 2007.

Al Millar, President of Alpha Pro Tech commented, “We experienced a slowdown in quarterly sales of Disposable Protective Apparel primarily as a result of weaker sales to the segment's largest distributor and to other clean room and industrial distributors. Shipments to our largest distributor were lower due to some of their end-users closing their manufacturing facilities, due to some lost business and due to some end-users that have decided to change distributors.

We expect to retain this business through other distributors but, are experiencing a slowdown in sales during this transition from our largest distributor to other distributors. In addition, our largest distributor has adjusted their inventory levels which decreased our sales to them in the first quarter.
