Filtrona sales up in third quarter

Foam products supplier Filtrona yesterday said trading in the third quarter was in line with the board’s expectations, with revenue up by 26 per cent compared to the same period last year. Like-for-like sales for the three months were up 10 per cent on last year. Chief exec Colin Day said the firm’s aim for 2015 was “at least mid single-digit like-for-like revenue growth and double-digit adjusted earnings per share growth.”
