Severfield CEO Alan Dunsmore said: “We were also pleased to complete the acquisition of Voortman, which brings in new clients, sectors and opportunities, enhancing our position as one of Europe’s strongest structural steel groups, and positioning us for further growth in the region.
“Whilst there are signs of inflation easing, we remain mindful of the macroeconomic backdrop. However, given the group’s performance to date and the strength of our orders books, we are confident of delivering further progress and a result for 2024 which is in line with our expectations.”
The company expects significant pipeline opportunities in the UK and continental Europe in 2024 and also seeks to take advantage of the underlying demand for structural steel in India.
