The increase in revenue is attributable to growing global demand for steel bearings as the Company had positive growth in sales from its existing customer base and was able to obtain new contracts. The Company increased prices of the steel bearings to offset the higher direct material costs of steel as the price for raw material steel products continues to increase as a result of higher global demand. In addition, the Company has started to realize the dramatic increase in gross profit margin as the result of the capital investments made in 2007 to improve its offering of bearing products and modernization of equipment and machinery, including the opening on the new plant in Xuyi.
