Mr. Walter C. Johnsen, Chairman and CEO of Acme United Corp.

While we’re always on the lookout for new and interesting companies to introduce at Smallcaps.us, we believe that staying up-to-date on our current investments is even more important. That’s why we’re pleased to announce an update interview with Mr. Walter C. Johnsen, Chairman and CEO of Acme United Corporation (ACU – $9.11).

The interview touches upon Acme’s turnaround in Europe, where good progress is being made thanks to increased sales and cost reductions. Mr. Johnsen discusses the successful acquisition of Pac-Kit, which sells first aid kits, and immediately set record sales for the second quarter.

A substantial portion of the interview is devoted to the Asia Pacific region, one of the Company’s growth avenues in the coming years. Mr. Johnsen talks about his recent attendance to Paperworld China and he gives his impression of the Asia Pacific market and economy. He also explains why Acme United might be well positioned to benefit from this booming market with continued economic growth.

Mr. Johnsen provides details on the Company’s quarterly dividend increase to 7 cents per share, or 28 cents annually, about a 3 percent yield at today’s stock price.

Investors familiar with Acme are sure to find useful information in our 10 minute interview, and people who aren’t yet aware of the Company’s products and growth potential, will get acquainted with a firm that deserves a spot on their radar.
