WHEN Burton Albion needed to find extra space after being promoted to the Championship, the club turned to Burton-based LCS Container Services.
Part of the Leavesley Group, LCS offered the Brewers the perfect solution with a two-storey modular building that can now be seen inside the Pirelli Stadium.
Russell Mason, director of LCS, dropped in to meet manager Nigel Clough and first team players Jackson Irvine and Luke Varney to celebrate the firm’s partnership with the club.
He said: “We have been going since 1979 but we have grown the business a lot in the last five years and that’s why we wanted a building here at the Pirelli Stadium to help build our profile and because of the connections. Already we have Staffordshire FA talking to us as a result.
“Storage and modular buildings is basically what we do for all your needs and we have our own workshops so we are adaptable and can do everything from start to finish.
“It’s a family company and the Leavesley Group is well known locally with its headquarters in Alrewas.
“We heard that Burton Albion needed more space and although a lot of people can supply the modular buildings we were able to personalise it to meet the club’s needs. It’s been a good relationship and I’m a Burton lad so it’s nice to see the club’s success story. It’s also good for two Burton companies to work together.”
Burton Albion commercial director Fleur Robinson said: “We are delighted that LCS were able to meet our needs and provide us with a new building. They went that extra mile to complete what was not an easy job.
“It’s important for Burton Albion to build links with a diverse range of businesses, especially local firms like LCS which have a lot to offer.”
