Outsourcer Bunzl has warned of supply chain problems and staff shortages in key markets.

Global delivery issues are affecting regions such as the US, UK, Mexico and Australia. In the UK it said: ‘Infrastructure projects are several months behind schedule and labor and material shortages are limiting a return to normal activity levels.’ The problems in the US were mitigated thanks to the global purchasing programs.

Bunzl posted a 12.3 percent increase in statutory profit before tax to £275.7 million for the six months to 30 June. Revenues were up 0.4 percent to £4.9 billion, up 6.3 percent excluding currency effects.
