Shane Fleming, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "Our second quarter results reflect the solid performance of the Aerospace Materials and In Process Separation growth platforms. Both segments delivered top line growth and significant earnings expansion, with aerospace organic growth driven by increased large commercial aircraft build rates, and mining driven by copper and base metal production.
"The main area of weakness continues to be the Industrial Materials business, which is plagued by a challenging European economy that has resulted in softer demand across our core industrial markets.
"Despite the current weak demand, I remain very positive about the longer term growth potential in the industrial materials market as we continue to see increased opportunities for the use of our composite materials, particularly in the automotive sector. Overall demand for the products that we supply to the aerospace materials and specialty chemicals markets remains resilient despite the uncertainties in the global economy."
