Despite those woes, said Puishys, Apogee saw demand stay strong in U.S. architectural markets, which drove up income for the company's architectural services business. The company makes various products such as aluminum frames for windows, curtainwalls and storefront systems, as well as special glass coatings.
"Overall, we're optimistic about Apogee's outlook," said Puishys. "In fiscal 2020, we expect improved revenue and operating margins in both of our core architectural glass and framing systems segments."
For the next year, Apogee forecast revenue growth of 1% to 3%, and earnings per share of $3 to $3.20.
