Skelmersdale-based FMCG haulier Kammac is back in the black after it sold its kegs and cask manufacturing division.

After it posted a loss of £7,000 in 2013, in the year-ending 31 December 2014 Kammac achieved a pre-tax profit of £260,000. However turnover from continuing operations fell to £19.9m from £23.8m.

The group's operating profit was £967,000 from its continuing operations compared with an operating loss of £904,000 in respect of the divisions which were sold.

The directors' report said that contract extensions had been secured during the year, and it had invested in leases for warehousing in the North West and Yorkshire to accommodate this business retention and growth.
