Manuel Brocke-Benz, President and Chief Executive Officer of VWR, commented: “Our third quarter results were boosted by exceptionally strong performance in EMEA-APAC. In this region, record revenue performance was due to double-digit growth in sales to biopharma customers, driven by strong sales of lab chemicals. Our third quarter 2017 results clearly confirm that the VWR growth story remains on track. I would like to thank all of our associates, as well as our loyal customers and suppliers, for helping deliver yet another solid result.”
