Commenting on the quarter, Stephen Hagge, President and CEO, said, “The diversity of our business enabled us to grow core sales in a challenging environment. Broad-based softness in Europe affected each of our business segments as the economic uncertainty there resulted in reduced consumer spending and increased caution by certain customers. Offsetting part of this weakness was strong demand from customers in Latin America and Asia.”
