About Balcas Energy:

Balcas Energy is part of Balcas, a natural leader in the world of timber.
We opened our first sawmill in 1962 and became one of the largest in the UK and Ireland. Our success came from our knowledge of and respect for timber. In our quest to make the most of every precious tree, Balcas Energy was born.

A co-product of our operations is pure sawdust. In 2004, using natural tree resin as a binder, our engineers pioneered the production of high quality wood pellets.

Originally known as brites, our high grade EN plus pellets have since grown to become 50% of our business. In 2016, Balcas purchased the UK’s largest wood pellet distribution company Forever Fuels and in 2019, with growth in mind, rebranded as Balcas Energy. Balcas Energy is proud to employ some of the most experienced biomass experts in the UK and Ireland and thanks to our advanced Combined Heat and Power plant, both of our production sites are self-sufficient.

Balcas Energy’s Invergordon and Enniskillen sites have production capacities of 100,000 tonnes and 55,000 tonnes of wood pellets respectively. Our operations are so efficient that we put surplus electricity back into the grid throughout the year.

Balcas employs over 380 people and an additional 300 are engaged in forest harvesting and haulage on our behalf.

As always the delivery driver Gary (who is the immediate face to your company) was superb. He is always exceptionally helpful, efficient and polite. He has gone "the extra mile" to ensure we did not run out of pellets. I cannot see a box for unhappy so I'll put it here. FF used to be very responsive in confirming a delivery shortly after I asked for it to be scheduled on line. Now I hear nothing until the very last minute to confirm that you will be able to deliver on the requested date. This makes me very nervous. This time we are under a week from the requested date and had still heard nothing. If it wasn't for Gary I am not sure that we wouldn't have run out and still heard nothing. In addition it seems very bad planning that I couldn't even get a pallet of pellets from you as a stop gap as they were marked out of stock on line.

They are a good-sized organization willing to supply small deliveries. Mally the driver is always pleasant, efficient and is not put off by bad weather and our remote location.

Easy to order online, quick delivery, kept us informed. But when blowing the pellets could the dust extractor pipe be used, as we had dust everywhere. Many thanks.

Provided and efficient service. Friendly on the phone. We are a tricky delivery, and the driver Mally was excellent. He phoned me last night and gave 2 phone updates this morning. Much appreciated. He said he enjoyed the difficult bridge (!) and was friendly when he was here.

This would have been a 5 star review if FF had not changed the delivery day. However the delivery itself went well and was within the time-slot indicated by the company. I would use this company again.

Received text 1 day prior to delivery as confirmation. Delivery came on correct day and stated time of delivery. Driver polite and helpful. All went efficiently. One can say everything went very well. Just trying to understand why blown pellet's have gone up 32% in price in the last 18 months.

Although first delivery got cancelled at short notice. The driver who delivered was excellent. It’s a tricky site but he pre-read my detailed instructions, called evening before and morning of delivery.
