- Restore said 2017 trading has started well across the group, and that it looks forward to delivering another year of strong progress.

Sir William Wells, chairman of Restore, said in notes for an AGM statement that the benefits of the acquisition of PHS Data Solutions in August 2016 were being delivered in line with expectations.

"Our Document Management division, including our core records management business, is trading well, with Restore Datashred and Restore Scan benefiting from their greater scale following the successful integration of the PHS scanning and shredding activities," said Sir William.

"The performance of Harrow Green, the core business within our Relocation division, is in line with expectations.

"IT Efficient, our IT recycling business, is steadily integrating ITAD Works acquired in February 2017, while ITP, our toner cartridge recycling business, is showing improvement following its poor performance in 2016.

"The year has started well and we look forward to delivering another year of strong progress in 2017."
