Spartech expects 'low to moderate' sales volume growth in 2013

"While recent customer order patterns have remained stable and resin costs have experienced downward pressure, slow and uncertain demand in the markets we serve and dynamic raw material costs may impact our financial results in future periods. We expect low to moderate sales volume growth in 2013 as well as higher selling prices and a continued shift in mix to higher margin business which should result in solid improvement in our results for the full year 2013 compared to 2012," the company said.
