With an eye toward increasing its presence in Europe and Asia, VF Corp. has set a 5 percent growth target in its foreign jeans sales this year.
Terry Lay, chairman of the Greensboro, N.C.-based company’s International Coalition, said the unit surpassed that goal with 8 percent growth in the first quarter, well ahead of the 3 percent gain it sustained last year. In 2001, VF’s international jeans sales represented about 10 percent of total corporate revenue or about $552 million, he said.
