Sales were flat in the quarter as compared to the second quarter 2011. Fire protection sales increased $6.1 million due to an increase in sales internationally and sales in the agriculture market increased $1.7 million primarily due to agricultural cash-flow benefits from continuing high commodity prices and drought conditions in the United States. In addition, sales increased in the petroleum and OEM markets by $1.5 million and $1.4 million, respectively. These increases were offset by decreased sales in the municipal market of $7.0 million principally due to decreased sales of pumps supplied for domestic flood control projects and funding constraints at the federal and local levels negatively affecting sales of sewage pumps and pump systems. Sales also decreased in the construction market by $2.0 million.
Record first-half sales included increases across all major markets the Company serves except municipal. The largest increases were in the fire protection market of $7.6 million due to an increase in sales internationally, the agriculture market of $4.3 million due to agricultural cash-flow benefits from continuing high commodity prices and drought conditions in the United States, the industrial market of $4.3 million primarily due to oil and gas drilling and the OEM market of $4.3 million related to increased power generation demand. In addition, sales increased $2.9 million in the petroleum market and $2.7 million in the construction market. These increases were partially offset by lower sales in the municipal market primarily of $6.5 million due to decreased sales of pumps supplied for domestic flood control projects as compared to the first six months of 2011.
Gross profit was $49.4 million in the first six months of 2012 compared to $45.6 million in the same period in 2011, an increase of 8.3%, resulting in gross margins of 25.3% and 25.9%, respectively. The decrease in the gross margin percentage was principally due to a less favorable product mix driven primarily by lower sales in the municipal market and higher sales in the fire protection and agricultural markets, and increased healthcare expense of $611,000.
