Premium fitted furniture supplier Neville Johnson posted strong top and bottom line growth in the first figures since the business was sold last year.

The North West company—which makes custom cabinets for lounges, bedrooms and studies as well as supplying staircases—grew sales by 7.9 per cent to £27.4m in the year to end April.

That built on growth of 9.6 per cent and 7.4 per cent in the two years immediately prior, with pre-tax profits in the latest period rising 13 per cent to £2.6m.

Neville Johnson, which is a sister company to the £10m kitchens business Tom Howley, was acquired by Alcuin Partners in a £22.6m deal in May 2014 with the cabinet firm’s executive management team also taking a significant stake.
