JSG Starts to See Light in the Tunnel – Increase in Business as Restrictions Ease

Johnson Service Group PLC (JSG) recently released a statement that ‘trading in the first four months of the year has remained being hit by the various lockdown restrictions, although an increase in demand can be seen – as restrictions are starting to ease.’

Workwear volumes in March were 96 per cent of normal levels and there was a slight continuous improvement during April as more businesses were allowed to open. In the HORECA sectors, JSG report volumes in the first quarter were 11 per cent of normal, but an increase in customer activity can be witnessed. During the last two weeks of April volumes were approaching about 30 per cent of normal activity with further increases expected as the restrictions, particularly on hotel stays, are relaxed.
