Accounts and Other Receivables
Financial instruments that potentially subject us to concentration of credit risk consist primarily of trade accounts receivables. Credit risk is minimized as a result of the ongoing credit assessment of our customers and a lack of concentration in our customer base. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers and require letters of credit, prepayments or other collateral or guarantees as management deems appropriate. J. Aron & Company (“J. Aron”) accounted for more than 10% of our net sales for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014. The allowance for doubtful accounts is reflected as a reduction of accounts and other receivables in the consolidated balance sheets.
Accounts and other receivables, net consisted of the following:
