CAVAN: Insulation specialist Kingspan has seen sales rise to €1.14bn for the nine months to the end of September, a 30% year-on-year increase.
Kingspan is confident that it will achieve full-year profits of between €82m and €85m, up on the €67.4m achieved in 2010.
However the group sounded a cautionary note, warning that "the threat of markets retreating" in 2012 remained a real possibility.
The group said that construction markets remained very weak with activity levels in the US and UK markets down by some 50% on a 20-year average.
Kingspan said UK activity levels had remained "resilient overall".
