Forgings experienced a major rise in revenue above the previous year, partly reflecting the first phase of full production in our new facility in the United States. Our plants in england and Brazil carry on and hold good market positions, reflecting an overall persistence for enhancing efficient production, product quality and customer satisfaction.
