Our global growth strategies and initiatives continued to deliver results as we grew sales in both of our business segments at a solid pace in the March quarter. The team achieved this growth despite reduced industrial activity in North America and in some market sectors,” said Kennametal CEO Carlos M. Cardoso. “Our sales gains, along with a robust improvement in the operating margin of our metalworking business, made a strong contribution to Kennametal’s overall operating performance.”

We are proactively addressing these challenges.”
