Victrex posts rise in full-year sales

High-performance polymers manufacturer Victrex yesterday reported a slight rise in full-year sales to 2,920 tonnes from 2,904 tonnes last year. The firm said it made good progress in the industrial and transport sectors, but this was offset by lower sales in the electronics market. “Looking ahead to our new financial year, whilst we remain mindful of the wider economic environment, our order book for October is reassuring,” said the FTSE 250 firm.
