Improved demand for our professional products reflected greater business confidence from our customers and increased home investments. The integration of our Venture Products acquisition added another strong brand with multi-season products, contributing incremental sales in the quarter.”

“Our momentum and continued investments position us well for success in the new fiscal year,” continued Olson. “We have a strong portfolio of businesses and deep customer relationships, a dedicated team and channel partners, and innovative products and emerging technologies aligned with customer needs. We will remain sharply focused on business execution as we continue to face uncertainty due to the ongoing pandemic.”

“We will build upon our Sustainability Endures platform, our commitment to making a positive impact worldwide. Throughout last year, we put this commitment into action as we transformed how we do work and reimagined our business model from product innovation and production through customer service and support, all while keeping each other safe. In addition, we remain committed to driving future results through our enterprise strategic priorities of accelerating profitable growth, driving productivity and operational excellence, and empowering people,” concluded Olson.
