Robinson sales rise 15%

Robinson, the custom manufacturer of plastic and paperboard packaging, grew sales by 15% in the first four months of 2018.

Underlying volumes were 10% higher with the balance of the increase attributable to resin prices and foreign exchange rates.

With higher costs associated with plans for business growth, profits are at a similar level to 2017.
