President and CEO Fred Zinn said, "As in the second quarter of 2010, operating results this quarter were impacted by fluctuations in raw material costs. Raw material costs as a percent of sales were low in the third quarter of 2009, and remained low in the 2009 fourth quarter, affecting comparisons of third, and likely, fourth quarter 2010 operating results to year-earlier periods. Volatility in raw material costs has become the norm, and we've learned to respond effectively. Further, over the years our operating management has been highly successful at improving operating efficiencies in all facets of our business, and we expect to continue to make progress in this area."
