CEO Dirk Maritz credited the company’s strong focus on efficient growth as helping to propel the company to profit.
"Taking seasonality into account, we believe the acquisitions we have completed, the addition of new product lines and sales staff, and the focus on improved costs put us on track to achieve our objective of full year EBITDA margin in the 10 – 15% range," Maritz said in a statement.
"We're realizing greater economies of scale through integration activities such as consolidated raw material supply, improved manufacturing efficiency and productivity gains, and lower cost of sales."
Last week, Atlas announced a supply and purchase deal with Gillfor Distribution Inc, which, it says, will generate significant market penetration and revenue growth for the group.
Gillfor is a leading independent wholesale distributor of building materials and will supply all of Atlas's Eastern Canadian operations with engineered wood products.
