<p>Haynes has reported an &quot;encouraging start to the financial year&quot;, with sales in the&nbsp;UK&nbsp;and&nbsp;Europe up 8% in the 13 weeks to 28 August. But its US sales have continued to &quot;fall short&quot;.<br /> </p><p>Revenue in the&nbsp;UK&nbsp;was ahead by 10% helped by strong sales in the general publishing division, which ended the 13 week period 19% ahead of last year while revenue from its automotive manuals tracked in line with last year.</p><p>In the&nbsp;US, market conditions remain largely unchanged from that reported at the year-end, Haynes said, with customer replenishment orders continuing to fall short of&nbsp;their own sales levels. As a result,&nbsp;US&nbsp;revenue in sterling&nbsp;ended the 13 weeks 6% down on the same period last year. </p>
