Going for growth.

BSS is showing robust growth

Published:  30 November, 2010

LEICESTER: British plumbing and heating firm BSS Group posted a 24.5% rise in adjusted pre-tax profit on robust growth across units.

It also  started the second half well with like-for-like sales in the first seven weeks up 5.9%.

"The improvement in trading results reflects a pick up in our core repair and maintenance markets, as the broader economy starts to recover, a more favourable price environment plus a focus on improving trade terms," the company said.

BSS said it was on track to complete the sale of the group to Travis Perkins by the end of this year.
