Porvair, the specialist filtration and environmental technologies group which has its registered office in Lynn, has announced positive trading results which show that its revenues this year are ten per cent up on the previous one.
And its microfiltration division has seen its revenues rise by 16 per cent, year on year.
A statement released today said: “Porvair has traded well throughout the year and the Board expects to report full year results ahead of expectations. Revenues for the full year, at constant exchange rates, are 10 per cent higher than the prior year.
“Revenues in the Microfiltration division are 16 per cent ahead of the prior year helped by significant activity on the POSCO, Reliance Industries and UK Government contracts. Seal Analytical has also traded well.”
Porvair’s products are used in a range of niche filtration markets, and are derived from its expertise in the design and manufacture of filtration systems using ceramic, metal, plastic and carbon media. Its Seal Analytical business is a market leader in the manufacture of laboratory-based water analysis equipment.
The group has operations in the UK, US, Germany and China, and employs about 600 people. It develops, designs and manufactures specialist filtration and separation equipment serving markets primarily in aviation, energy and industrial process, environmental laboratories and molten metals.
