Based near São Paulo, Labor Import is principally engaged in the supply and distribution of own label medical and healthcare consumable products to redistributors as well as to hospitals, clinics, laboratories and care homes throughout Brazil. Revenue in 2012 was R$49.5 million (US$25 million).

Michael Roney, chief executive of Bunzl, said, “The purchase of Labor Import is another important step for Bunzl as it represents our first move into the healthcare sector in Brazil, having previously acquired businesses in the safety and cleaning & hygiene sectors. It has a market leading position and an excellent customer base which should provide a platform for us to develop a strong presence in this sector going forward.”
