Commenting on the results David Banks, Non-executive Chairman of Haydale, said:

‘The Board is encouraged by the very positive response from across several different industry sectors to our new products and technologies, which gives us confidence in our medium to long-term outlook. However, we are yet to see any sustained recovery in our Aerospace business and so we continue to be cautious with respect to short-term revenue. Haydale’s proprietary technology now has the potential to deliver material change across many sectors in ways that our customers are increasingly recognising as important in their search for more environmentally friendly materials. As a result, Haydale is expanding the Group’s capacity to functionalise nano and other materials and continues to invest in product development critical to our future success.’
