Net sales in the second quarter increased 27.0% to $2,260,000 from $1,780,000 in the prior-year quarter.  For the first six months of 2019, net sales increased 22.1% to $4,268,000 from $3,496,000 for the first six months of the prior year.  International sales in the second quarter of 2019 increased to 13.8% of sales, compared to 7.4% of sales in the corresponding quarter in 2018, primarily driven by stronger sales in Brazil.

"Revenue growth during the quarter was largely driven by projects in grain, feed and milling markets," said David L. Klenk, Electro-Sensors' president. "Additionally, the increase in the second quarter was in both our traditional monitoring products and HazardPROTM wireless system sales."
