We are also delighted, post year end, to have been selected to continue with the Framework Agreement for our condition monitoring technology.

"As an acquisitive business, we continue to evaluate opportunities that would fit the Group whilst also driving organic growth. The potential for Tracsis overseas is significant, and we will continue to build on the presence we have in place.
