Hargreaves on track for 2011

British energy support services firm Hargreaves Services has posted a near 10 per cent rise in first-half pre-tax profit driven mainly by higher commodity prices, and said it was on track to meet its full-year profit targets. The supplier of solid fuels and bulk material logistics said it saw a robust performance from its energy and commodities business with revenue increasing 32 per cent to £149.5m.
