Sales edge up at Victrex

Sales at polymer manufacturer Victrex edged up over the year to September, it said yesterday. Revenue rose two per cent to £219.8m over the 12 months in what chairman Anita Frew labelled a “challenging economic environment”. Good growth in its Victrex Polymer Solutions business and growth in developing markets of its biomaterial solution business Invibio flattered the firm, it said.
