07:36 16/10/2019 - Infection prevention product manufacturer Tristel booked an 18% rise in annual profit driven by sales growth both at home and abroad.

Pre-tax profit for the year through June rose to £4.7m, compared to a profit of £4.0m on-year.

Revenue rose 18% to £26.2m, with overseas sales up 26% to £14.4m.

Tristel declared a full-year dividend of 5.54p per share, up 21% on-year.
