Item 12.   Results of Operations and Financial Condition

On April 24, 2007 the Registrant issued a press release announcing
earnings for the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2007.  A copy
of such press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99 and is incorporated
by reference herein in its entirety.

Item 5.02 (c).   Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of
Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory arrangements with
Certain Officers.

On April 24, 2007 the Registrant appointed Mr. Paul N. Farquhar, age 45, as
Vice President, Treasurer and Principal Accounting Officer.  Mr. Farquhar is
a British Chartered Accountant and from January 2005 to March 2007 was
European Financial Controller for AAF International, a global company
providing products for air filtration.  From 1997 to January 2005 he was
European Finance Director of Haskel International Inc., a world leading
manufacturer of hydraulic and pneumatic driven high pressure products,
systems and accessories.

Mr Farquhar is employed by the UK subsidiary of the Registrant at an annual
salary of 90,000 British Pounds (approximately $180,000).  In the event of
termination of his employment without cause, he would be entitled to a
termination payment of 3 months salary.

On April 24, 2007 Mr. Farquhar was awarded 2,000 shares of restricted stock
which will vest on the third business day after the announcement of fiscal
2007 results; provided that they will fully vest upon his death or Disability
or upon a Change of Control (as each is defined in the Registrant's Stock
Option Plan).  If Mr. Farquhar's employment with the Registrant is terminated
for any reason other than his death or Disability, any unvested shares will
be forfeited and returned to the Registrant, unless the Compensation
Committee of the Board of Directors determines otherwise in its discretion.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
