Erfurt (dpa/th) - Thuringia's sales heavyweights in industry are the Wartburg and Ilm districts, the Gotha district and the city of Jena.

After three quarters, Thuringia's industry generated sales of 28.2 billion euros. Also due to higher prices, this was 3.5 billion euros more than in the same period of the previous year. The three districts and Thuringia's optics stronghold Jena contributed more than 10 billion euros.

The region with the highest turnover was the Wartburg district with just under 3.3 billion euros by the end of September.
