Glass World: Volume 18

Welcome to the latest edition of Glass World, Ferro’s global newsletter. I hope, like us, that you are heading into the end of the year feeling positive about an upturn in the market. As a company we are definitely looking forward, especially after attending the Glasstec 2010 exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany at the end of September. With 1,200 stands and more than 45,000 visitors, the general feeling was much more upbeat than in 2008. It certainly reinforced our view that all of the markets Ferro serves are in recovery. Ferro Glass Systems had a very big presence at Glasstec 2010 and I am glad that so many of our customers took the opportunity to visit us and discuss business and market trends. This year we were delighted to host the President and CEO of Ferro Corporation, Jim Kirsch and VP of Electronics, Colour and Glass Materials, Mike Murry. I know they enjoyed meeting and talking with many of our customers and distributors who attended the Show.
