The AIM-listed company said kitchen services provider Filta had performed very strongly across North America, while commercial drainage specialist Metro Rod experienced robust trading in the UK.
Having acquired Filta for £49.2million earlier this year, the group noted the division was benefiting heavily from the increasing price of cooking oil, which franchisees often amass before selling to other customers.
