- Porvair said its FY pretax profit rose 9% to record GBP9.2m, from GBP8.4m. Final dividend was 22p a share, up 10% on the year.

CEO Ben Stocks said 2015 finished with a strong final quarter and healthy order books.

"Over the last two years significant investments have been made in capacity with new production lines being brought into operation. A promising new product development pipeline offers plenty of opportunity for organic growth.

"The two recent acquisitions should start to contribute in 2016. The Group is in a strong financial position and a good start has been made to the year."
