£7.3m deals boost Mount Charles expansion

By Staff Reporter

Food service giant Mount Charles says it has won £7.3m in new contracts over the last year, as well as expanding its workforce by 130 staff.

It says one of the most significant contract wins is a three-year deal worth £3.5m to supply professional contract cleaning to a government body, which will see the outsourcing giant employ a further 212 employees across Northern Ireland. The firm achieved a turnover of £28.1m in 2015, increasing its revenue by £2.6m from 2014.

Just last month the Belfast Telegraph revealed a review has been launched into the "administration" of Mount Charles' contract for the Waterfront Hall.

Speaking about the latest growth, managing director Cathal Geoghegan said: "Our growth trajectory in the past few years has been significant

"We now work with over 150 companies across Ireland. Good news travels fast and our reputation for excellence along with our ability to be competitive has allowed us to win a substantial number of lucrative new contracts."
