Sales at the companies coating division which manufactures yarns, fabrics and technical coated textiles fell to 146.1 million euro in YTD Q3 2013 from 150.7 million euro in the same period last year even as revenue from direct coating and transfer coating grew at a faster pace in the third quarter of 2013.
