Net sales increased 13.8% to $195.9 million for the third quarter, compared with $172.1 million for the third quarter of 2012.
The increase in Simpson’s third-quarter 2013 net sales was due to increased sales in all segments, with North America reporting the largest increase.

Net sales were affected negatively by reduced home center sales and lower selling prices in the United States, Canada and Europe.
