ERJ staff report (BC)
Melksham, UK – Avon Rubber expects strong fourth quarter trading in its protection & defence division to raise group full-year adjusted operating profit ahead of current market expectations.
Main contributors to the expected improvement are defence orders from the UK Government and customers in the Middle East.
Dairy division trading has remained in line with market expectations in difficult trading conditions. Our new cluster exchange service has been successfully launched in the key Californian market.
Avon Rubber’s full year results will be announced on 20 November 2013.
Peter Slabbert, chief executive, said: “This brings 2013 to a positive conclusion. A recently announced order for 52 000 C50 [respirators] and filters will allow us to continue that positive momentum into 2014.”
