Management Discussion
  • Sales – Worldwide sales for 2019 were $2,194,226, a decrease of 2.7 percent from 2018 sales of $2,254,668. Sales volume decreased 0.7 percent and unfavorable currency translation effects decreased sales by 2.0 percent. The volume decrease consisted of 1.1 percent organic decline and 0.4 percent growth from acquisitions.
  • We had one acquisition during 2019, Optical Control GmbH & Co. KG (“Optical”), which is included within the Advanced Technology Systems segment.  As used throughout this Form 10-K, geographic regions include the Americas (Canada, Mexico and Central and South America), Asia Pacific (excluding Japan), Europe, Japan, and the United States.
  • Sales of the Adhesive Dispensing Systems segment were $950,917 in 2019, a decrease of $4,275, or 0.4 percent, from 2018 sales of $955,192. The decrease was the result of unfavorable currency effects that decreased sales by 2.8 percent, offset by a sales volume increase of 2.4 percent. Within this segment, sales volume increased in all geographic regions with the exception of Europe. Growth in product lines serving packaging, product assembly, and polymer processing end markets was offset by softness in product lines serving nonwoven end markets.
