oShipments increased 7 percent

In total, non-aggregates gross profit and profit margin improved $8 million and 330 basis points from the prior year due mostly to double-digit growth in unit shipments in each segment.

Don James, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Demand for our products continues to benefit from a recovery in private construction activity, particularly residential construction. As a result, each of our operating segments reported earnings improvement in the fourth quarter.
