A Preston-based electrical firm is buzzing with excitement after landing more lucrative contracts.

Following on from the success of 2015, Lantei Compliance Services has secured contracts in December and January which have doubled the company’s 2016 turnover in a matter of eight weeks.

Electrical testing specialists Lantei is now on the hunt for top talent to help strengthen its base of operations in Preston, Glasgow and London.

The move follows the success of their new business team securing contacts taking them from a £1.9m business in 2015 to a £4m business over the next twelve months.

2015 saw Lantei focus on the strengthening of both its internal business structure, tender departments and technology innovation. The results of that work ended in the awarding of nationwide contracts from prestigious property management companies such as JLL and CBRE, along with high profile clients from BUPA to The University College of London, which alone is an estimated £1.5m deal and more.

Newly appointed managing director of Lantei Andrew Livesey said: “We thought last January was great with the awarding of 3,000 properties in the Hull region, but this has just blown our minds.

“The vision Anthony and Leona have had of a vibrant and inspiring business, along with all the hard work everyone has put in over the last few years has certainly paid off.

“We now have to focus on delivering this work to the same high standard as we always have done. I can’t wait.”

Lantei is a multi-award winning testing company which offers compliance packages and have achieved national awards including E3 High Growth of the Year 2015 and ECA Contractor of the Year 2014.
