Bunzl quarterly revenues up 12pc

Outsourcing firm Bunzl yesterday said revenue in the third quarter increased by 12 per cent, boosted by “the positive impact from acquisitions”. The firm also said yesterday it has bought Pro Epta, a catering equipment distributor in Mexico. “Bunzl’s strong cash flow and balance sheet, together with a promising acquisition pipeline, should continue to give the group opportunities to consolidate the markets in which it operates and deliver further growth,” said the company.
