Net sales totaled $51.5 million (52.0 million Euros), and the operating result was $0.1 million (1.3 million Euros).

“Glaston’s second quarter was reasonably good, particularly compared with the weak quarter of the previous year,” says president and CEO Arto Metsänen. “Due to an increased number of deliveries, second-quarter net sales grew by 32 percent. The comparable operating result improved significantly to EUR 1.4 million, whereas last year the second-quarter result was a loss. The market picked up perceptibly, and new orders grew by 23 percent compared with the first quarter.”
