Gross profit at the Wilton company increased $27.5 million, or 27.6 percent, to $127.3 million and gross margin was 44.4 percent, up 510 basis points compared with 39.3 percent in the second quarter of 2015.

The company said the increase in gross margin was driven primarily by supply chain efficiencies including the ramp-up of its Heartland facility in Joplin, Mo. and lower input costs.
