Accrol Group Holdings plc posts positive Preliminary results

Accrol Group Holdings plc, the AIM listed leading independent tissue converter, headquartered in Blackburn, has today announced that its revenue increased by 14.2% to £135.1m and gross profit increased by 9.3% to £37.7m.

Its key operational highlights included a successful maiden full year as a publicly listed company, with a solid trading performance and good progress has been made on building a platform for future growth, supported by new hires to operations and management functions.

Reflecting on the year, Steve Crossley, Chief Executive Officer of Accrol, commented:“This has been a year of positive change for Accrol as we have transitioned to life as an AIM listed company. We have won new contracts and increased our share of the Discount Sector to over 50%.

“We continue to build a platform for future growth, having made a significant investment in our new manufacturing facility at Leyland to create extra capacity. A new finished goods warehouse in Skelmersdale, announced in May 2017, will provide central storage and distribution facilities for our customers, improving our supply chain efficiency and enabling us to build on our market position. 

“Increasing input costs, driven by exchange rates, are impacting most product categories in UK retail and like all UK manufacturers, we continue to seek inflation recovery. There are positive signs, with some retailers increasing consumer price points, although it is slower than we expected. We believe that as price increases come through fully in the market, this will continue to drive shoppers to seek good value in the Discount and Multiple own-label sectors.’’
