Nine-month 2017 sales came to €337.5 million, up 27% compared with the first nine months of 2016. Sales during the third quarter of 2017 came to €119.2 million, an increase of 23% on the third quarter of 2016.
Yves Roche, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Recylex Group, commented: “Our good performance continued throughout the first nine months of 2017, thanks to the strong rise in metals prices and to our solid production levels in the Lead and Zinc segments. The Plastics and Special Metals segments still face tough conditions, but we saw the first positive signs during the third quarter. In the fourth quarter of 2017, we will aim to maintain a high level of production across all our business segments in order to benefit from the supportive environment and we will continue the construction work on the new reduction furnace, which is currently progressing on schedule.”
