The achievement was a result of the contribution of the recently acquired Superfos business, according to the company’s interim management statement for the period from 1 October to 31 December 2011.
The realisation of synergies in relation to the acquisition, including the closure of one site, has also been identified as a factor of the revenue boost.
“The Group’s overall performance for the period was in line with our expectations. During the period the integration of the Superfos business has been largely completed with the realisation of the synergies well on track,” said RPC CEO Ron Marsh.
“Looking forward, I am confident that growth in higher added value products will continue and that RPC is on track to deliver further progress despite the current macro-economic uncertainties.”
