LINDON, Utah, Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Profire Energy, Inc. (OTCBB:PFIE), which manufactures, installs and services burner management systems and other combustion management technologies for the oil and gas industry, today announced that it has renovated its existing warehouse and plans to purchase an additional shipping bay. The renovation and expansion is intended to help the company prepare for future product distribution, and is expected to help enhance inventory management and increase shipping speed within US markets.
"Although historically a majority of our sales have come from Canada, recently we are seeing exciting growth in our US operations," said Cameron Tidball, VP Sales & Marketing of Profire. "Our Texas office—opened just last year—is already profitable, and our Utah office is also seeing marked sales growth. While we expect Canada to continue its history of product development and sales revenues, it is possible that our United States sales may surpass Canadian sales in the coming 12 to 18 months."
The company's recent renovation and expansion includes:
"These recent improvements to our warehouse represent our continued interest in improving distribution efficiency," said Andrew Limpert, chief financial officer of Profire. "As we have seen continued growth in US sales, we are expanding and preparing for increased US distribution to ensure that our supply chain is prepared to meet the demands of US sales."
