Groundwork specialist says emerging markets will bolster year

Keller Group has promised “an excellent set of results” for 2008.

The specialist ground engineering company said trading had continued to be strong since an interim management statement on 13 November. At that point, the company said in that trading in the period from 1 July to 12 November remained very strong and added that it continued to see good organic growth, particularly in Eastern Europe, Middle East and Australia.

The sterling value of the order book was much the same as last year, the firm said.

Keller is building the foundations for the London 2012 Olympic Games stadium. The group's 2008 results are expected in March
