- Commercial flooring supplier Mountfield Group said it expected to post a rise in annual profit amid higher sales.

Pre-tax profit for the year through December was expected to exceed the £864k achieved on-year, the company said in a trading update.

'Whilst much of the construction industry has been impacted by the unresolved Brexit negotiations, the group has continued to experience buoyant demand for its services,' Mountfield said.

'The directors are confident that, with the record amount of work secured at this point of the year and the demand for its services remaining high, the group will produce another strong performance during 2019.'
