The company made a pre-tax profit of £3.2m.
The acquisition and integration of the NMCN highways business, supply chain price inflation, and the front-loading of expenses during contracts’ delivery phases reduced the company’s gross margin to 10.6%.
The secured order book increased by 70% to £526.4m in FY22, which represents one year’s annual revenue.
