Commercial Vehicle Group resumes production in Shanghai » 08:1405/2605/26/22
CVG announced on Thursday…
CVG announced on Thursday that it has restarted operations at its Shanghai plant in China. In March, the company became one of thousands of manufacturers in the region that were forced to halt production as the result of restrictions aimed at stemming the spread of COVID-19. Production at the Shanghai plant resumed on May 20 at 50% capacity under a "closed-loop" system - where employees must receive a negative COVID test and then live on-site within the factory - to minimize the risk of spreading the virus within the city. CVG plans to continue ramping up production over the next few weeks in accordance with the local lifting of restrictions, led by Deputy Mayor of Shanghai Zong Ming, who has stated that the city hopes to fully open in June. The shutdown in March had immediate impact on CVG's OE seating customers in Asia and abroad, who were either facing similar manufacturing restrictions or unable to ship and receive products due to congestion in Shanghai's port, which is the largest port in the world. CVG responded quickly, moving to air shipping to limit supply chain disruptions for its customers. The company was recently able to reinstate ocean freight through both the Shanghai and Ningbo ports. CVG's local seat production in Asia includes the manufacturing of medium- and heavy-duty seating solutions for some of the region's largest vehicle manufacturers and represents an $80 million accretive business for the company. Globally, seat-part supply from Shanghai impacts $170 million worth of production for the company within the U.S., Mexico, UK, Thailand and Australia. In combination with the war in Ukraine which immediately impacted production at the company's facility in L'viv, CVG faced first-quarter interruptions that have continued into the second quarter. CVG is actively resolving these setbacks and expects second-half operations to be back to pre-war, pre-COVID status, barring any new unforeseen events.

Reports Q1 revenue $338.55M, consensus $333.03M. "We generated strong revenue growth of 14.6 percent and record non-GAAP EPS of $0.86 this quarter. Our strong sales growth was primarily driven by our Identification Solutions division which had total sales growth of 21.1 percent this quarter. We've been working to enhance our product offering and the three acquisitions we completed last year are contributing to this, while also helping shift Brady into faster-growing end markets," said Brady's President and Chief Executive Officer, Russell R. Shaller. "In our Workplace Safety division, we took actions to reposition our product offering, to deemphasize certain under-performing businesses, and to streamline our cost structure. These actions have been very positive resulting in the increase in Workplace Safety segment profit this quarter. As a result of our ongoing efficiency activities and pricing actions, we experienced a sequential improvement in our gross profit margin of 140 basis points from 47.0 percent for the quarter ended January 31, 2022, to 48.4 percent for the quarter ended April 30, 2022. Overall, Brady is performing at a high level with strong sales growth, record EPS and a strong foundation, which we believe sets the stage for positive future results."
