- Building products supplier Epwin Group said it had made an encouraging start to the year, consistent with meeting market expectations for 2019.

'Trading has been pleasing, particularly in the window systems business which has continued to win new customers,' the company said ahead of its AGM.

The Amicus distribution and PVS decking acquisitions were integrating well and performing in line with our expectations, it added.

'The group is also pleased to launch its aluminium window system today, in line with the project plan, and has continued to progress the building of its new warehouse and finishing plant in Telford which will be operational in early 2020.'

'The board retains its positive view of the medium-term prospect for the market given the continued under investment in RMI, strong new build demand and nascent demand in social housing markets.'

'We look forward to updating shareholders further at the half year.'

At 2:25pm: [LON:EPWN] Epwin Group Plc share price was +4.1p at 85.7p
