“As we discussed last quarter, municipal budgets continue to be under significant pressure which is impacting demand for our products,” said Gregory E. Hyland, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Mueller Water Products. “Lower production levels in our Mueller Co. business negatively affected our 2011 fourth-quarter performance as compared to 2010. Production at Mueller Co. was down appreciably this year compared to last year largely due to the pull forward of orders in advance of our July 2010 price increases.
