Hipple Chairman and CEO reported While I am disappointed with the Beryllium plant start-up problems we faced during the first three quarters of 2012 and the physical inventory change in the fourth quarter, we took effective corrective action. Even though I remain cautiously optimistic about the global economy as a whole we are seeing a business boost across most of our key markets. In 2012, we undertook numerous strategic steps including the closure and relocation of several small-scale manufacturing facilities strengthening our pricing and buying practices and introducing a number of new product and development initiatives, all of which we believe would improve both Materion’s short- and long-term growth and profitability.
