Two government contracts were not renewed in the first half, accounting for more than 2 percentage points of the drop. U.S. construction and installation business was flat. A decrease in residential business was offset by commercial sales.   ; U.S. sales to industrial market and in technical services were offset by the winding down of  ; unprofitable large MRO customers and reduced levels of activity with a few large integrated supply customers, particularly in the automotive industry," Hagemeyer reported.   ; Hagemeyer also reported it has reorganized its U.S. operation into three business units: MRO, Integrated Supply, and Construction and Installation.   ; In Canada, sales fell in the first half, with a hint of recovery in the second quarter when it registered positive growth. Two branches were closed in Canada in low-growth markets; revenues from oil and gas were lower due to the timing of large projects.   ; Mexico was the only North American country registering revenue growth in the first half.
