Bodycote remains buoyant

Metal company Bodycote yesterday said acquisitions help offset a dip in revenues in the three months ending October. Organic revenues fell 1.3 per cent but acquisitions added 4.9 per cent, giving the group revenue growth of 3.6 per cent on a constant exchange rate basis. “Although economic growth in both Europe and North America continues to be muted, the group’s organic performance is showing some improvement,” the company said.
