“We are delighted to report a return to profitability in the second quarter,” said Mikros CEO Tom Meaney. “Despite the COVID-19 restrictions, which have seriously affected both us and our principal customer the U.S. Navy, we have been able to keep Mikros running and profitable. Most of our employees in Pennsylvania and Florida have been working from home, but with extensive use of remote tools like Teams and Zoom, we are continuing to operate effectively and meet our delivery schedules.”
“Our team has risen to the challenge and continued its outstanding performance in 2020 while dealing with unprecedented restrictions on the workplace and on-site customer visits,” added Mikros President Chuck Bristow. “We expect to continue the recovery through the rest of this year, and our current backlog remains strong at $5.2 million. We have hired four new engineers this year as our workload has increased, and recently our ISO 9001 quality certification was confirmed in a rigorous audit.”
Mikros VP of Business Development Lori Ogles added, “Our new developments for extensions to the AN/SYM-3 product line are continuing, and despite the added travel restrictions and quarantine orders arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have several new ship installations planned this year. We recently opened an office in Ventura, California to support this contract and expect to use this as a base for expanded business development activities on the west coast.”
