Plumbing business says trade is healthy despite tricky market conditions

Plumbing and piping distributor BSS Group has announced that first half trading had gone well despite difficult market conditions.

BSS said its industrial division benefited from the company’s movement into the health and education markets, and it expected this to continue into the second half.

The company said its domestic division captured further market share and said it had traded well in the social housing market in a period which is usually weak.

On 28 November 2005 the BSS Group will announce its interim results for the six months ending 30 September.
