New York - Better volume from existing accounts pushed sales ahead for WestPoint home during the recently concluded quarter.


"We're seeing demand slightly up," Dan Ninivaggi, president of WestPoint parent company Icahn Enterprises, said during the company's quarterly conferece call today. Sales volume in the last several weeks "seems to be flattening out," he added.
