VP. Are they set to benefit from the bad weather?

Friday, Feb 07 2014 by

I'm wondering weather VP will benefit significantly from the current troubles down south?.
They hire out specialist equipment in the rail and piling industry, and from what i can see in the news, that sort of equipment is going to be required. Along with heaters to dry out houses.

I'm not sure how big a player VP is, so wondering what other suggestions people might have as to potential beneficaries of the current bad news.

Cant comment on VP, but with the same thought process I brought a few Andrew Sykes Andrews Sykes (LON:ASY) who hire out portable pumps, heaters and AC units. The first 2 should benefit from the flooding and if we then get a hot summer (heres hoping) the AC will benefit too.
