UNC Inc.

The Annapolis-based company, which has just completed a five-year restructuring that transformed it from a diversified concern with interests in telecommunication, uranium mining and nuclear waste cleanup into an aviation services company, reported yesterday that first-quarter earnings rose 24.1 percent.

The company said that higher margins in the manufacturing and remanufacturing of aircraft engine components and in the aircraft accessory overhaul businesses were the principal reasons for the improvement in income from operations.

Income from operations totaled $7,762,000 for the quarter that just ended, up from $6,677,000 in the same period last year.

Procter & Gamble Co.

Buoyed by a heavy push of its Folger's coffee products and new compact detergents, the Cincinatti-based owner of the Noxell Corp. said that both sales and earnings rose in the first three months of this year.

While Procter & Gamble said that it is feeling the effects of the recession, strong international performance helped push profits for its third fiscal quarter up 5 percent from the same period a year ago. Sales were up 11 percent, to $6.8 billion.

The company did not break out the performance of Noxell, the Hunt Valley-based maker of Cover Girl cosmetics and Noxzema skin care products. Procter & Gamble recently announced plans to add to its cosmetics business by buying Revlon's Max Factor and Betrix companies.

Armco Inc.

The slump in the economy continues to batter steel companies, and Armco Inc. says it doesn't expect much relief in the coming months.

The steelmaker, which is based in Parsippany, N.J., and owns the Baltimore Specialty Steels plant on East Biddle Street, said it lost $39.6 million in the first three months of the year.

In addition, it said the division that runs the stainless steel rod plant in Baltimore, which has been losing money for months, continued to do so in the first quarter, declaring a $200,000 quarterly loss.

Sales of the two-plant bar, rod and wire division fell 6.2 percent.
