Net sales during 2019 increased 10.2% to $8,258,000 from $7,495,000 in the prior year. The increase was due primarily to an increase in sales of our HazardPRO™ wireless hazard monitoring systems. International markets provided approximately 12% of our 2019 net sales led by improved sales to Brazil.
"We are pleased to announce record annual revenue during 2019," said David L. Klenk, Electro-Sensors' president. "Our growth during the year was largely driven by sales of HazardPRO wireless hazard monitoring systems, including several repeat and multi-system orders from existing customers."
