Lisburn company to supply 16 new forklifts to firm

By Staff Reporter

A Lisburn forklift firm has secured a £400,000 deal with Encirc - the Fermanagh glass business formerly owned by Sean Quinn.

The Alexander Group, founded in 1967, will supply 16 new Linde forklifts to Encirc Glass.

While the two companies have already worked in partnership for some years, Alexander Group said that the new agreement would help it secure further jobs.

The group is the sole supplier of Linde forklifts in Northern Ireland and has already supplied Encirc with 100 vehicles.

Kieron Holmes from the Alexander Group said: "I'm delighted that we have secured this significant deal with our colleagues at Encirc.

"This means that we can go forward into 2017 with a relationship that provides top range Linde Forklifts for an innovative company based here in Northern Ireland."

Encirc, which is owned by Spanish company Vidrala, makes container glass and operates a complete supply chain from its headquarters in the village of Derrylin and a site in Elton in Cheshire.
