Net sales for the 2022 first quarter increased 12.3% to $2,135,000 from $1,901,000 in the prior-year quarter. The increase in sales was primarily a result of increased domestic sales for industrial automation and agricultural applications.

'We are pleased to report our largest first quarter revenue in the company's history,' said David L. Klenk, Electro-Sensors' president. 'Additionally, I'm proud of our team for maintaining a strong gross margin in the face of significant challenges in the global supply chain.
