Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On February 15, 2008, the Compensation Committee of the Registrant's Board of
Directors approved the following cash bonuses for 2007 pursuant to the
Registrant's Annual Bonus Cash Incentive Program for the Registrant's chief
executive officer, chief financial officer and the three other most highly
compensated executive officers during such year:

            Officer                                          2007 Bonus
            -------                                          ----------

            Joseph G. Morone                                   $844,403
            Michael C. Nahl                                     230,352
            Daniel A. Halftermeyer                               90,200
            David B. Madden                                      90,200
            Ralph M. Polumbo                                    116,464

The Committee has also established target 2008 cash bonuses for Messrs. Morone,
Nahl, Halftermeyer, Madden, Polumbo and Michael Joyce pursuant to the
Registrant's Annual Bonus Program as follows:

            Officer                                   2008 Target Bonus
            -------                                   -----------------

            Joseph G. Morone                                   $896,250
            Michael C. Nahl                                     220,924
            Daniel A. Halftermeyer                              188,320
            David B. Madden                                     188,320
            Michael J. Joyce                                    188,320
            Ralph M. Polumbo                                    113,582

The Committee determined that cash bonuses for the Registrant's top management,
including the above-named officers, for 2008 would be based on one or more of:
consolidated operating income, adjusted corridor or segment operating income,
corridor or segment net sales of other functional metrics and individual
performance criteria. A cash bonus equal to the target amount will generally be
paid if the Committee determines that appropriate performance levels in each of
these areas has been achieved. Lesser bonuses may be paid if such performance is
not achieved and larger bonuses if performance exceeds such levels. The
Committee further determined, however, that it would reserve the right to
exercise its discretion, after the close of the 2008 fiscal year, as in prior
years, to determine to what extent cash bonuses had been earned, and reserved
the right to take individual performance factors (including, for example, the
possible adverse impact during the year of cost-reduction, plant closings or
downsizings and other restructuring-related activities in specific divisions,
regions or business lines) into account, and to employ both objective and
subjective criteria in determining the final bonuses.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
