The biggest and most important segments for the Impel Group, i.e. Real Estate Management and Security Services recorded an increase in the sales revenue. Real Estate Management, which mainly consists of cleaning and maintenance services and facility management, achieved sales revenue of almost PLN 100 million, i.e. by PLN 1.45 million more than in the previous quarter of this year. In the Security Services business unit the increase in the sales by about PLN 1.2 million – to PLN 78.4 million, resulted from the well-developing service of technical protection of property, including monitoring. From the segmental perspective, the biggest sales dynamics in the 2nd quarter was recorded in the Distribution segment including catering, laundry, rental and delivery logistics services.
„In the second quarter we continued the operations which adjust our cooperation to the changing situation in the work market, i.e. growing employment costs and economic migration, which is reflected in the financial results. We negotiate rates for our services, offer more modern and profitable outsourcing solutions. At the same time, we observe more and more dynamic development of our relatively new products such as laundry and rental services. Moreover, we constantly look for the opportunities to expand our business activities. For this purpose, at the beginning of August, we established the company Impel UK Limited Great Britain, which will enable us to expand in the area of the United Kingdom and promote our basic services” – says Wojciech Rembikowski, Vice-President of Impel SA.
