Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On November 5, 2008, Ferro Corporation (the "Company") announced that it plans to discontinue manufacturing activities for products related to Ferro's Color and Glass Performance Materials business at its manufacturing facility in Toccoa, Georgia. Manufacturing activities for the affected products are expected to be concluded by the end of December 2008. By November 5, 2008, the Company notified all its employees in Toccoa, Georgia, of the pending facility closure.

As a result of these restructuring actions, the Company expects to eliminate 56 employee positions. The Company expects to record pre-tax charges related to the actions in the quarter ended December 31, 2008. The charges include approximately $0.5 million in severance costs and $1.0 million in contract termination and other costs. At the time of the filing of this Current Report on Form 8-K, the Company was unable to make a determination of the estimated pre-tax charges related to asset write-offs. Once the determination is made, the Company will file an amended Current Report on Form 8-K to disclose these charges.

The annual pre-tax costs savings resulting from these actions are estimated to be $3 million to $4 million, beginning during 2009.
