Solid fuel and bulk material supplies specialist Hargreaves Services is expanding its industrial services division and moving its headquarters to Capitol Park, in Barnsley.

The company has taken 10,000 sq ft of offices at 1 Capitol Court, by Junction 37 of the M1.

Hargreaves’ industrial services division provides support services for the materials handling, power generation and utilities industries across the UK.

It includes E.ON, EDF and Scottish Power among its customers.

Managing director Julie Haynes said: “We have moved because we needed to expand and because we wanted better facilities and an improved working environment.

“We have now got 50 office-based staff and have room to expand even further.

“Although these have been challenging economic times, the company has done well and our splendid new offices at Capitol Park reflect that,” she added.

Chris Rowlands of joint letting agents Rowlands & Co says the deal with Hargreaves is the biggest office letting in the Barnsley area for a decade.

One Capitol Court comprises 30,000 sq ft of office space .

It has been developed by Sterling Capitol, in conjunction with Priority Sites.

The Capitol Park scheme also includes an hotel, a pub, seven occupied hybrid units and provision for a 250-space park-and-ride facility.
