Building boost for suppliers

BUILDING materials supplier SIG has reported a 23.5 per cent rise in half-year underlying pre-tax profit to £41.5 million, helped by a robust improvement in the UK residential construction market and a mild 2013-14 winter.

The Sheffield company said revenue rose 6.5 per cent to £1.3 billion in spite of mixed conditions across Europe.
