“We continue to make progress in an environment that is burdened with lower demand, less favorable product mix and weak spot market pricing," said Webco CEO Dana S. Weber. "We are having success adding incremental business, but the industrial economy in general is challenging, exacerbated by the accelerating cost and complexity of regulations and legislation.”
