Commenting on the contract award Peter Fowler, Chief Executive of Westminster Group, said:

"Having recently delivered the remainder of the $4.5m USD vehicle screening contract in the Middle East, which the Company secured in 2018, this latest award for container screening at two ports in Asia is a testament to Westminster's expertise and global reach.

 

"We have commenced 2019 on a strong note ahead of budget and this latest award underpins our expectations for the year.
