Wuerth Gruppe Sees 2012 Sales Over EU10 Billion, Berliner Says

Wuerth Gruppe, a privately owned German maker of screws, adhesives and other fasteners, expects sales this year will exceed 10 billion euros ($13.1 billion) for the first time, the Berliner Zeitung reported, citing an interview with the company’s founder, Reinhold Wuerth.

Sales this year are being helped by a weaker euro that’s boosting exports, the newspaper cited Wuerth as saying.
