GREEN BAY, Wis., May 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tufco Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:TFCO), a leading provider of branded contract wet and dry wipes converting in North America and a provider of specialty printing services and business imaging products, today announced that fiscal year 2011 second quarter sales were $28,611,000, up 37% over 2010 second quarter sales. For the first six months of fiscal 2011, sales were $52,772,000, compared to $40,917,000 for the first six months of fiscal 2010, an increase of 29%.

Net income per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was $0.03 per share compared to a net loss of $0.05 per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2010. For the first six months of fiscal 2011, net loss per diluted share was $0.01 per share compared to a net loss per diluted share of $0.09 for the first six months of fiscal 2010.

In commenting on the results, Louis LeCalsey, Tufco's President and CEO said, "While profitability was restored in the second quarter, the sales volume increases we saw were dampened by pricing and cost pressures. The second quarter sales increase results from a combination of increased sales to existing customers and sales of new products to both existing and new customers. We expect overall continued profit improvement in the third quarter."

Tufco, headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, has manufacturing operations in Wisconsin and North Carolina.
