Ceramics and home fragrances drive growth at Portmeirion
Portmeirion Group reported a 15% rise in total group sales for the first four months of 2018 on Thursday, as its shareholders mustered for the company’s annual general meeting.
The AIM-traded firm said that was driven by strong growth in both ceramic and home fragrance product divisions.
“On a constant currency basis total group sales are 20% ahead of last year,” said non-executive chairman Dick Steele.
“We are delighted with the start to the year, however due to the seasonal nature of our business and the importance of second half trading we continue to expect full year profit before tax to be in line with market expectations.”
