Overheads down and profits up at Stan Robinson

Stan Robinson Group increased its turnover and pre-tax profits last year, and believes 2007 will be better still.

Turnover was £15.3m, with a pre-tax profit of £514,000 - a margin of 3.4%. The company has cut overheads by 13% since 2004, including closing its loss-making Ipswich depot 18 months ago.

MD Stan Robinson says: "We have achieved a decent result by charging a decent rate and not working for cheap. But we had a disastrous December, January and February last year like everyone else. This January has already been busier."

The company has four depots, 170 trucks and 180 drivers.
