Our Textile Rental division is robust and has continued to win new accounts. We are delighted that Stalbridge Linen Services has reported a small adjusted operating profit."

SGP, in the Facilities Management division has had a good first half in terms of new contract wins, although there has been no upturn from Agency or Capital projects."

"Despite the challenges of the economy both on us directly and indirectly through our customers, the Board is confident in achieving a satisfactory result for the year.”
