In a trading update for the six months to June 30, Midwich reported a 25% increase in revenue to £264.1m while profit before tax increased by 48% to £11.85m.

Michael Broadbent, managing director, of the business' Australian arm, said: 'As a group, we recognised some time ago that the broadcast and professional video markets are a natural adjunct to our traditional audio visual activity.
