Revenue jumps at Intertek

Testing company Intertek yesterday posted a 20.1 per cent jump in revenue for the July to November quarter, buoyed by strong growth from the Americas, Asia and the Middle East. Europe still proved a hard market, with growth “below the group average”, it said. The adjusted operating profit margin for the group, which acquired NDT Services for £17m in September, is expected to be broadly stable on the prior year.
