Mount Charles invests £75m in new contracts in 12 months

Mount Charles, Ireland’s leading independent foodservice and support services company, has announced signing new contracts worth a combined contract value of £75 million pounds in the last 12 months

This latest tranche of wins contributed to a boost for 2017/8 turnover by 20% to £40m, marking over a decade of growth for the company.

The new contracts in Northern Ireland include Belfast International Airport, Wrightbus and Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, while in the Republic of Ireland Mount Charles has been successful in securing tenders for the National Aquatic Centre, Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport and LauraLynn Children’s Hospice amongst others.

Trevor Annon, Chairman and Founder of Mount Charles said: “Over the past 12 months we’ve secured a substantial number of lucrative new contracts in what we feel is clear sign that we are bringing an attractive offering to the table, in terms of value, quality and innovation in our approach

“Our growth in turnover in a competitive marketplace is a hugely encouraging indicator that we are on course to achieve our target of £100m in revenue by 2025,” he added.

The Belfast-headquartered company also recently confirmed that sales have grown by just over 30% in the Republic of Ireland last year.

Mr Annon continued: “There is certainly still room for growth in Northern Ireland, but growing our market share in the Republic will be a major driver for overall company expansion over the next five years.

“We’re delighted with the progress we’ve made in the last year, and thanks to increased infrastructure and a focus on strategic talent acquisition in Dublin, we believe we’re in a strong position to really push forward in Ireland in the year ahead” he finished.

In March 2019 Mount Charles was announced as one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Programme for the ninth consecutive year, demonstrating excellent business performance across the board.

Mount Charles currently employs 2,500 staff and services over 400 clients across the UK and Ireland.
