Gross profit improved $2.7 million to $20.5 million, a 15.1 percent improvement compared with $17.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, and a 10.2 percent sequential improvement from $18.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

The gross profit improvement was driven by several new product launches, successful productivity initiatives and increased sales revenue through acquisition.

In the first quarter, we continued to invest to better serve growing global demand for our technologies and products. On December 9, 2014, we announced the opening of a strategically located facility in Clarksville, Tennessee to manufacture high-pressure and structural aluminum die castings. In addition, we continue to achieve new business and gain synergistic benefits from our recent Finnveden Metal Structures and Radar Industries acquisitions. Expanded magnesium capabilities have enabled significant new business wins and future opportunities in Europe. Additional stamping capabilities and footprint expansion in the rapidly growing automotive market in Central Mexico have also delivered strong results. Also in the first quarter, we announced our new sales and technical center in Plymouth, Michigan. The Plymouth Technical Center will officially open on March 16 and we are excited about the opportunity for greater collaboration amongst our employees, our customers and our suppliers.
