Uniform and career apparel manufacturer Superior Uniform Group Inc on Tuesday posted a jump in third quarter net profit to $1.58 million from $980,000 in the year-ago period.

The Florida-based company said it was pleased with the increase in earnings which came amid flat sales of $36.6m.

It added it was happy with "significant reductions in our selling and administrative expenses as a result of the significant reductions in administrative personnel and related costs that were implemented last year".
