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.

The five stars are for Richard, our delivery driver, who as always went above & beyond. If I could, I'd put 1 star for the company though. Like everyone here, the takeover has been less than okay. As a comparison, with Forever Fuels, you placed your order, could select a delivery date to suit, would receive a notification, almost immediately with a confirmed delivery date and payment was on account, as quantities were not completed until the day. Thus, you paid for the actual amount delivered, sometimes less, sometimes more. With Balcas, I placed the order, was required to pay immediately, received a confirmation of possible dates (which incidentally they failed to meet) and then a final notification of less than 24 hours before the actual delivery date. In summary, five stars for Richard, one at best for Balcas. Balcas, please note this and sort out your systems and admin. It makes all the difference to the customer experience.

Delivery process was perfect. Date was pre-arranged by email, driver then contacted me the night before and again an hour before arriving. Delivery itself was efficiently done and I was back to work within an hour. Can't fault it at all.

Your driver (David Osborne) made the difference between providing an acceptable service and providing a very good service. He does his job thoroughly and to a very good standard. Delivery Staff like David give me the customer the confidence to keep ordering from you. I have no doubt that you are proud to have people like David work for you and as a customer it would fantastic if all drivers did their jobs the way David does 👏👏👏
