And the others that uncertainty related to the euro and the U.S. election doesn’t freeze investment decision makers into activity as they await greater clarity.Our markets remain workable although the other states robustness are variable across product categories and across regions.

Commercial and residential construction is not a meaningful source of growth although the picture on future prospects seems to be gradually brightening in North America.
