Alliance has focused efforts on costs and margins to maintain healthy profits.

Online catering equipment and supplies dealer Alliance Disposables had something to celebrate with the publication of its 2019 financial results on Companies House.

The distributor generated a record £126.9m in revenue in the 12 months to 30 September 2019, a figure it will likely be difficult to top in the next few years due to the coronavirus impact. That was an increase of nearly 11% over the previous 12 months’ total of £114.6m.

Operating profit likewise grew by 11% from 2018’s £6.4m to £7.1m last year. Margins performed as the company budgeted, at 27.8%.

Director, Paul Bonson, stated: “The directors are pleased with the shape of our business model and the balance between national and regional trading.

“Alliance has increased turnover in line with our budgeted plan whilst managing to maintain margins in a competitive market.

“Focused efforts on service, costs and margins have ensured that profits have remained at a planned and healthy level.”

He added: “Alliance Ireland continues to perform to plan, having successfully secured targeted customers in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.”

Alliance is headquartered in Crewe and provides coverage of both the UK and Ireland from a network of 13 depots. The firm has an offering of over 24,000 products.

During 2019, the dealer continued with significant investment in warehousing, distribution and infrastructure to deliver growth.
