Spirax-Sarco says sales growth at main business to halve

Text size Aa Aa

(Reuters) – Spirax-Sarco Engineering Plc <SPX.L> expects sales growth at its main business to more than halve in the second half of this year, as a weakening global economy weakens forecasts for industrial production, the company said on Wednesday.

The valve maker said sales would drop at its Steam Specialties business partly due to the “non-repeat nature” of some of its sources of growth in the first half, which included several large orders in China and Korea, a Brexit stock build and a stronger than expected currency devaluation in Argentina.
