    Ferro "Big" people don't listen. Ferro "Big"
    people don't see and worst, people don�t want to listen
    or to see.
    - Don�t listen the signs coming from
    markets. That's why Ferro is only shooting in the dark.
    See the last aquisition in Europe. We are looking
    only for short term growth. Not consolidate growth.

    Outside Ceramics, are Ferro a player in Europe?? NO.

    • Ferro has always wanted to be present in Europe
      but has never made anything other than a token
      effort. No matter how they talk about being an
      international or "global" company, the truth is they are first
      and foremost a domestically focused, US company.

      • Your assertion that Ferro is only a domestic
        company doesn't match with the facts. In addition to
        ceramics, Ferro has large European operations in enamels,
        powder coatings, plastics and now chemicals. It also has
        substantial operations in Asia and South America. Roughly 35%
        or more of the company's sales, assets and profits
        are derived from overseas. Finally, a quick look at
        other American corporations its size shows very few
        have Ferro's international diversification.
