May Gurney boosts order book to £1.25bn

May Gurney says trading for the six months ending 30 September has been in line with its expectations helping to boost the order book to £1.25 billion.

In a pre-close trading statement ahead of the company’s interim results in December bosses said they are confident about business prospects for the current financial year and beyond.

Chief executive Philip Fellowes-Prynne said: “We have achieved good progress in the first half of the year.

“Our prospects are positive in our markets and we are on target to achieve expectations for the full year.”

May Gurney said its framework forward order book is now £1.25 billion with prospects in the growth maintenance services market remaining positive.

The company said that strong local authority spending remains robust with good bidding prospects.

Bosses added that the integration of ECT Recycling, the environmental services collection and recycling specialists, acquired in June 2008, is proceeding well.
