Textiles group Gordon John says it is on the lookout for acquisitions and new product segments following its move to modern factory premises.

The soft furnishings group — which owns the Sundour and Style Furnishings brands — says its 25,000sqft Warrington site has given it the capability to absorb potential acquisitions.

Gordon John added it was in the process of launching a range of luxury wooden blinds as it looked to expand on its core curtains offer.

Sales in the year to end March rose 4.8 per cent to £8.6m, while pre-tax profits were flat at £276k.
