Fourth quarter sales for the residential products segment increased 9 percent, while industrial and infrastructure sales increased 10 percent.
“Our revenue outperformance this quarter was driven by organic growth, despite the absence of overall end-market improvement,” said Brian Lipke, CEO of Gibraltar. “This was another quarter of increased sales related to residential new construction. Sales related to repair and remodeling in the residential and low-rise commercial building markets exceeded our expectations, driven primarily by demand for our centralized mail storage solutions."
