Furthermore, the recent acquisition of Stadium United Wireless positions us extremely well to capitalise on the growing demand for wireless connectivity solutions. As the business moves forward during the coming year, we anticipate the growing Technology Products division will generate approximately 50% of Group revenues, supported by the modernised global manufacturing facilities within the iEMS division,” Commented Chairman Nick Brayshaw OBE. “The initial months of 2015 have seen an encouraging start to the year, with the order book and revenues ahead of the comparable period of last year. We expect this improvement to continue going forward and therefore remain confident about the prospects for the current year and beyond,” he adds.
