REVENUES will be up for an Oldham consumer goods giant, say bosses.

Management at Ultimate Products have issued a trading update, after strong online performances in June.

Pre-tax profits look likely to be above £9.6m for the year ending July 31.

Simon Showman, chief executive, said: "We are pleased to be making better-than-expected progress against a backdrop that remains hugely uncertain and challenging.

"The investment that we have made in our online segment in recent years is delivering particularly good results, and our adaptive, resilient and flexible business model is standing us in good stead.

"At this time of unprecedented hardship for many people in the communities in which we operate, we are continuing to do everything that we can to help out through a range of initiatives.”
