Profits soar


KEEPMOAT chairman Dick Watson is expecting to see turnover at the South Yorkshire firm rocket when it publishes its 2004 results later this summer.

The group, which includes Bramall Construction, Frank Haslam Milan and Haslam Homes, is set to post a 56 per cent hike in turnover to £240 million.

Pre-tax profits for the year ending March 31 are also expected to shine with figures coming in at almost double last year's £10.4 million.

The sparkling results will come as the Doncaster firm looks to beef up its operations outside its north-east and north-west heartlands.

Mr Watson said the firm was eyeing up opportunities in the corridor between Glasgow and Edinburgh. He added:

'There is a lot of work about to go on up there and it is something we are interested in.'

It is also looking at projects in Milton Keynes and Corby in Northamptonshire.
