Robust trading from Leeds-based manufacturing firm Genuit as it manages supply chain shortages

Manufacturer Genuit Group today revealed that it had traded robustly over the last four months after it acted to counter cost inflation.

Genuit Group, which provides sustainable water and climate management services for the built environment, has issued an update on trading for the four months ended 31 October 2021.

In a statement, the Genuit said: " The group outperformed a market where demand in the group's core segments of UK residential new build, RMI and infrastructure continued to pull hard with group revenue for the four months ended 31 October 2021, 31.1% higher than the equivalent period in 2019 (10.8% on a like-for-like basis) at £207.6m (2019: £158.4m)."

"The group has acted decisively to counter ongoing cost inflation in the second half, and although the necessary pricing actions have been taken, the normal lag effect means that the operating margin for the second half of the year will be lower than H1 2021. Margins are expected to recover in early 2022 as those lag effects work through."
