First-quarter 2011 sales grew 7.5% from the same period last year, or 7.3% excluding the effects of foreign currency translation. Sales increased 8.5% in Pharmaceutical Packaging Systems and 4.7% in Pharmaceutical Delivery Systems. The overall sales mix improved as a result of growing sales of high-value pharmaceutical packaging components and proprietary devices. Contract manufacturing revenues were flat due to scheduled price reductions that offset other gains, and sales of disposable medical device components declined. The Company's order backlog at the end of the quarter was over 11% higher than the comparable amounts at December 31 and March 31, 2010.
