Third quarter sales in the Glass Operations segment were $189.9 million, down 0.5% compared to $190.8 million in the same period of 2011. Sales performance was reportedly led by a 13% increase in sales within the China sales region and a 9% increase within the Mexico sales region.

Sales for the first nine months of 2012 were $606.2 million, up 0.7% compared to $602.3 million for the first nine months of 2011. Sales in the Glass Operations segment were $551.7 million, an increase of 0.8% compared to $547.4 million in the first nine months of 2011.
