Peter M. Dawson, Chairman, commented:
Our focus on renting premium equipment with outstanding customer service will continue – and it is very encouraging to see more customers making long term commitments.
Our focus for 2017 will be to continue to develop our market advantage in truck and trailer rental, further consolidate our TCS businesses in Europe and continue the expansion of Dawsonrentals Vans and Dawsongroup Finance.
Recent investments in customer focused IT and new product offerings show promise, continuing the development of Dawsongroup from an asset rental provider to a full business solutions partner.
The board remains confident for the future of the group, despite the uncertainties that exist around the UK withdrawal from the EU. In particular the extent to which Sterling weakness will place inflationary pressures on future asset purchases and any arising market confidence issues will require close management.
