Sales at Arco grew to almost £300m last year, in a 12 months which saw the Hull safety equipment specialist invest more than £14m in its operations.

The business, which is currently building a new £25m distribution centre in Henry Boot Way to double its existing capacity, recorded a turnover of £295.1m in the year up to June 30, 2018 – up 2.6 per cent from the previous year.

Operating profits also rose by six per cent to £10.2m – up from £9.6m in 2017.

It means Arco is also on track to meet its growth targets in coming years, as the Hull business prepares to create new jobs in the city at its distribution centre.
