&nbsp ;
U.S. sales to industrial market and in technical services were offset by the winding down of&nbsp ; unprofitable large MRO customers and reduced levels of activity with a few large integrated supply customers, particularly in the automotive industry,” Hagemeyer reported.
&nbsp ;
Hagemeyer also reported it has reorganized its U.S. operation into three business units: MRO, Integrated Supply, and Construction and Installation.
&nbsp ;
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.
&nbsp ;
Mexico was the only North American country registering revenue growth in the first half. Industrial contracts increased; that growth was partially offset by a decline in telecommunications sales.
