Bunzl plc

Bunzl plc was incorporated in 1940 and listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1957, but its origins date back to 1854 when Moritz Bunzl opened a small haberdashery business in Bratislava, now the capital of Slovakia. The business has changed and grown considerably over the years to become what is now a leading specialist distribution group, supplying a broad range of non-food consumable products that are essential for its customers to operate their businesses but which they do not actually sell. Bunzl plc is a FTSE 250 company with a group turnover in 2013 of £6.1 billion. Its operations span across 23 countries and 4 continents and the group employs more than 13,000 people. Group companies operate in the grocery, foodservice, cleaning and safety, non-food retail, healthcare and redistribution markets.
