Chairman Michael Derbyshire said: "The group has yet again delivered a strong trading performance during the year, and made excellent progress in implementing its stated strategic objectives.

"The two acquisitions made during the year are well aligned to our strategy and we have been successful in rapidly integrating both companies into the group.

"Having exited the year with record order intake and pipeline within CTP and with the early delivery of our objective for Wipac of securing a second mid-volume lighting programme, we remain on course to deliver strong improvements in returns over the coming years to our shareholders."
