"We also improved gross margin by more than 200 basis points with gains in each of our core segments. We delivered these results by continuing to realize the benefits from our cost synergy initiatives, enacting new productivity programs in the face of challenged end markets, and driving higher pricing based on the value-added solutions we deliver.”
