Kingdom renews contract with leading wood product supplier

clip_image002Kingdom is delighted to have had their contract renewed to provide security services to Balcas, one of Britain and Ireland’s largest wood product suppliers.

Kingdom has been providing 24 hour manned guarding to their Invergordon site for the last year. Kingdom controls the entry and exit of the site, which includes issuing health & safety equipment and visitor passes, handling all deliveries, completing all paperwork, and ensuring all Balcas policies are followed. Kingdom has provided a level of service that has impressed the company over the last year, which has resulted in the contract being extended by another year with an option to extend for a further 12 months after that.

They have pioneered biomass renewable energy in the British Isles, leading the development of the market for wood pellet fuel in Britain and Ireland. Balcas has a turnover of around £85million.

Balcas operates from several sites, including sawmills in Enniskillen and Estonia, an architectural mouldings factor in Kildare, and combined heat and power plants in Enniskillen and Invergordon that produce renewable energy.
