St. Louis, MO-based Graybar reported sales for the third quarter of $1.6 billion, up 0.9 percent over the same period a year ago. Profit decreased 6.6 percent to $28.3 million.

For the first nine months of the year, sales were $4.5 billion, a 3.5 percent increase from the same period last year. Profit decreased 7 percent to $65.9 million.

“We achieved our twelfth consecutive year-over-year quarterly net sales record,” said Kathleen M.
