Centrica plc is a leading British multinational company offering energy products and services. Headquartered in Windsor, Berkshire, the firm is the largest supplier of electricity and gas products and services to individual and corporate consumers in the entire region of the UK and other nations including Ireland, Scotland, and the US.
The company was established in 1997 following the demerging of the British Gas plc that established three major companies; the Centrica plc took over the monopoly supply of gas and oil products to the UK and other two firms; BG plc and Transco plc producing electricity and other energy-related services. The firm expanded rapidly riding on the strong well-established network of the former company and the deregulation of the gas industry.
Today, the firm has expanded its portfolio through its subsidiary companies operating in different locations. The company is currently listed on London Stock Exchange and a component of the FTSE 100 Index.
