Full accounts for the Bristol firm to 30 September 2022 saw a 45% increase in turnover and an improved cash position. 

Lancer Scott’s two main operational divisions are facilities maintenance (FM) and construction.  

“The Company continued to restructure and implement new systems against a backdrop of economic uncertainty,” said the company. 

“Costs were volatile, a post-Covid marketplace and storm clouds loomed on the economic horizon.” 

To mitigate the economic risks, Lancer Scott invested “heavily” in its FM division which “traditionally performs well in a recession”.
