- Howden Joinery posted a 5.7% rise in revenues for first 16 weeks of the year as the company hiked up prices in January, against the backdrop of strong volume comparators last year.

For the 16 weeks to 20 April, Howden Joinery UK increased revenue by 5.7% overall and by 3.9% on a same depot basis, compared to the equivalent periods last year. 

Howden Joinery traded from 702 depots in the UK, with 8 new depots opened so far this year, and planned to open around 40 new depots in the UK during 2019, including 5 in Northern Ireland.

Looking forward, 'we are on track with our plans for the year as a whole although remain watchful of market conditions and the further impact that Brexit may have on the economy,' the company said.
