Howden joinery revenues up in 'robust' performance
Howden Joinery reported a rise in revenue for the period from 16 June 2019 to 2 November 2019 in what it called a “robust” performance against a strong comparator last year.
Howdens UK depots total revenue increased 4.9% and 2% on a same depot basis with gross margin during the periods in line with management expectations.
The company said it expected to open a total of around 40 depots in the UK in 2019, including five in Northern Ireland, taking the total number of depots in the UK to around 734. Five new depots were also expected to be opened in France.
Howden said it remained on track to meet full year sales and profits expectations.
