Plastic packaging manufacturer Robinson increased its pre-tax profit by 23% to £2.67m in 2011.
Chesterfield-based Robinson made a £1.4m gain the disposal of its paperboard tube business and closure of other operations but this is not included in the underlying pre-tax figure. Revenues grew 10% to £21.5m. The total dividend is 15% higher at 3.75p a share.
Robinson believes that its revenues should be resilient because of its customer base of food and drink companies.
