SYDNEY -- Pallet and container supplier Brambles Ltd. (BXB.AU) said first-quarter sales revenue increased by 2%, underpinned by growth in its Americas business.
The company on Thursday reported sales revenue from continuing operations of US$1.16 billion for the three months through September, which it said represented a 5% lift on the year-earlier period at constant foreign-exchange rates.
"Our first-quarter sales performance reflects pricing discipline and ongoing volume momentum despite increasing macroeconomic uncertainty in our major markets," said Chief Executive Graham Chipchase.
