- Vp plc, the equipment rental specialist, said it continues to experience positive trading in the current financial year which is in line with the board's expectations.

The UK division has made further progress, with healthy demand from the infrastructure, construction and housebuilding sectors complemented by contributions from Zenith Survey Equipment and Jackson Mechanical Services (UK) which were acquired by the group in April 2017.

Within the international division, the oil and gas sector remains slow but stable.

The Asia Pacific based test and measurement business has performed well in the first six months.

The company anticipates that Vp will make further progress in the current financial year.
