Paving supplier Marshalls has profited from a £10M increase in revenue in the first four months of the year.
The Huddersfield-based firm reported increased public sector sales despite the Government’s spending crackdown.
Sales to its core public sector and commercial end market were up 12%, while revenue from the domestic end market rose by 7%, compared to the same period in 2010.
The encouraging sales performance helped swell revenue from £103M to £113M.
Marshalls said in a statement: “Sales in the first four months of 2011 have continued the positive trend of 2010, however, market uncertainty remains.
“The outlook for the public sector and commercial end market remains mildly positive and the domestic end market remains resilient.”
