- Vp Plc said it has maintained the excellent business momentum seen early in the year and reported at its AGM in July. This trend has continued into August with good demand, in particular, from infrastructure and housebuilding, and a gradual improvement in general construction.

On 30 July 2014 we announced the acquisition of the trackside plant and equipment rental activity of Balfour Beatty Rail Limited for a cash consideration of £5.5 million. The initial integration with our rail activity, Torrent Trackside, is progressing well.

The Group continues to identify areas for further investment in its business streams and we remain well placed to deliver good progress this year.
