Alexandra PLC, the UK-based contract clothing company announced at its AGM today that results were in line with expectations.

David Dunn, company chairman, said: "The hard work put in by both staff and management over the past four years has reconfirmed Alexandra's reputation for service, design and quality. This is underlined by several recent major contract wins with well-known national and international companies.

"A further vote of confidence in the group comes with the news that we have retained our contract to supply First Group's bus business across the whole of the UK for a further three years."

He added that the company's emphasis on cost control continues, with further progress being made in the areas of overhead and stock reduction.
