"This strong financial position has given us a very solid foundation to manage the challenges of the Covid19 pandemic.

"Our factory remained fully operational throughout the lockdown earlier this year and our teams across the business embraced the new ways of working very positively to avoid any disruption to our customers.

"We were also pleased to support the NHS working on several Covid-19 emergency hospital projects and accelerated completions of a number of healthcare schemes to increase patient capacity.

"The outlook remains positive. Sales enquiries are at a healthy level and we have a strong order book with a number of projects already in contract for delivery in 2021.”
