Boughey Distribution has performed ahead of expectations in the first half, according to parent company NWF Group.
In a trading update for the half year to 30th November, NWF said Boughey “has continued to deliver high levels of service while managing continuing volatility caused by significant levels of promotional activity.
“Performance has improved as a result of management action to increase backload activity and improve warehouse and distribution efficiency.”
Against a backdrop of difficult conditions in our markets the Group has traded in line with Board expectations during the first half. Profit before taxation for the six months ended 30 November 2011 is anticipated to be slightly behind the strong comparative period in the prior year and is after acquisition costs.
