Our European Key Account and Insite™ strategy continued to produce significant growth, against a challenging market backdrop, with Key Account revenues up 8.7%, representing nearly 55% of sales. Our launch of the full Tools and General Maintenance range of products on the continent resulted in growth of 35.7%; the established foundation of supplier relationships and expertise will enable us to enjoy significant future growth of this product range.

Whilst the pace of economic recovery in Europe remains uncertain, our growth drivers will ensure we continue to perform well ahead of our markets.”
