LCC Power delighted after hat-trick of agri-food deals

By Staff Reporter

Co Tyrone business electricity supplier LCC Power has won three new contracts to supply three of Northern Ireland's biggest agri-food firms.

LCC Power - part of the Lissan Coal Company group - will be supplying energy to dairy and beef co-op Fane Valley, poultry giant Moy Park, and a third firm which has not been identified.

The triple-win comes shortly after LCC Power won several major contracts in the public sector.

LCC will supply 10 Fane Valley sites across Northern Ireland in a deal worth millions of pounds. However, the value of the deals with Moy Park and the third company have not been disclosed.

LCC Power, part of the Lissan Coal Company Group, began trading in Northern Ireland in April 2012. The parent company announced pre-tax profits of £14m in the year to September 2013, earning it a place at number 21 in the Belfast Telegraph Top 100 Companies.

LCC Power's workforce has grown from seven to 55, and it now has an office in Belfast.

Lynn Barker of LCC said the company had developed a "major portfolio of customers and is delighted to announce that LCC Power are now supplying the top three agri-food companies within one of the most thriving business sectors in Northern Ireland today.

"LCC Power has built on the strengths of the LCC Group, with excellent customer service, the lowest costs possible and long standing respect for our customers. Those simple, but durable values are proving successful amongst our existing, and rapidly growing list of customers."

Trevor Lockhart, chief executive of Fane Valley, said: "The arrival of LCC Power into the electricity supply market has proven beneficial to Fane Valley in our recent procurement process. 

"Fane Valley are pleased to have signed up with LCC Power. We look forward to a good working relationship based on transparent competitive pricing, and personal account management."
