"While we benefited from rising steel prices, we also saw increases in volume for Steel Processing with improvements in markets such as agriculture. Pressure Cylinders performance was steady for the year despite headwinds caused by softness in the oil & gas equipment market, which showed signs of improving in the fourth quarter. Engineered Cabs also benefited from better agriculture and construction markets. Our joint venture results were down from a year ago as higher steel prices weighed on WAVE’s results."
