- Distribution and services group Bunzl said it expected revenue growth in a range of 2% to 3% for the full year, citing 'mixed' macroeconomic and market conditions.

The company also announced that it had recently acquired Fire Rescue Safety Australia, a business engaged in the distribution of specialist safety and personal protection equipment focused on fire, rescue and emergency response services.

The business, based in Perth, operated from five locations across Australia, generating annual revenue of about A$37m.

Expectations for the year ending 31 December remained unchanged with overall trading consistent with the slowing underlying revenue growth indicated in previous announcements this year, the company said.
