LCC Group, which is owned by the Loughran family, is made up of LCC Coal, LCC Oil, Go Power and other companies. It started out in 1980 as a domestic coal supplier.
Profits are largely derived from overseas bulk trading activities as far afield as South Africa, Colombia and across Europe.
But the business also diversified into film production with the opening of Loop Studios in east Belfast. It has three stages ranging in size from 20,000sq ft to 38,000 sq ft with heights of up to 39 ft, providing flexible space for TV and film productions.
Last year it was one of the locations for the shooting of Netflix’s adaptation of young adult fantasy series The School For Good And Evil.
LCC Group plans to extend the existing site into a 23,000 sq ft studio in a big boost to film and TV production here.
In 2017 the group bought Cloghan Point Oil Terminal near Carrickfergus from AES Power in a multi-million pound deal.
In October 2016 LCC also bought out its joint venture partner, Norwegian oil giant Statoil ASA, to acquire full ownership of the Maydown oil terminal.
Go Power also supplies electricity in the business market.
