Sales grew 1.9 percent to $1.19 million, largely due to increased demand for the firm's agricultural product line, Amerityre said in its third-quarter 10Q form filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Amerityre said its operations are focusing on three segments of the tire market: closed-cell polyure-thane foam tires to OEMs, distributores and dealers, which account for most of the company's revenues; polyurethane elastomer forklift tires, of which manufacturing was suspended in 2013 due to quality and process issues and for which it is slowly trying to reformulate and reintroduce into the market; and agricultural tires, an area in which the company said it has experienced revenue growth.
