Marshalls reports increased landscape and retail sales

A six-month trading statement from Marshalls, the landscape and paving manufacturer, shows an 11 per cent increase in sales to £199m.

Marshalls said sales to the public sector and commercial end market, which now represent around 64 per cent of total revenues, were up 15 per cent compared with 2014.

Sales to the domestic end market, which represent around 30 per cent of revenues, were up four per cent compared with the prior period.

The survey of domestic installers at the end of June 2015 revealed order books of 12 and compared with 10.6 weeks at the end of April 2015, the company added.

Chief executive Martyn Coffey said: "We are continuing to invest in the further development of the Marshalls’ brand across all of the group’s businesses, as well as in product innovation and service delivery initiatives to deliver continued sales growth, improved trading margins and increased return on capital employed."
