Lab Safety Supply
Lab Safety Supplys sales for the quarter were up 13 percent, primarily the result of the acquisition of AW Direct in January 2005. Also contributing to the growth was an increase in volume in the core product lines. Operating earnings were up 9 percent, affected by an increase in spending on catalog media, information technology and healthcare costs.
