This month we are celebrating 3 years in business. We are proud to mark this milestone given the challenging year we have all come through. We launched in 2019 and looking back, the Company has adapted, progressed and grown in so many ways.
We began with a modest fleet of 4 vehicles and a team of 6. In just a few short years we have grown to a fleet of 26 vehicles and over 40 employees. Due to continual growth, we continue to expand which brings inevitable changes. For instance, we have outgrown our depot in Pinewick Business Park and this month we have completed the move to our new premises in Blacks Lane. Various tradesmen have been busy turning the new premises into a fantastic purpose-built depot which will house all of the business needs.
Our team has grown rapidly over the last few years as we have welcomed new clients onboard. Our operations team and operatives are the best around. We are proud of our employees who represent the Company every day on the roads. There are various daily challenges within the roles but our team always endeavour to go the extra mile. Even through the pandemic, everyone continued to work to support the delivery of essential services. Thank-you to our amazing team for helping us reach this milestone!

We are delighted to welcome two new faces to our management team. Ryan Ogle, has been with the Company from day one and now starts in his new role as Operations Supervisor. Ryan has worked in traffic management now for almost 9 years and is bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience into his new role. His common-sense approach, adaptability, and commitment are fantastic qualities to further strengthen our Operations team.
We also welcome Christy O’Neill as our Events, Safety and Compliance Manager. For the last 15 years Christy’s expertise has been in Road Safety Engineering, Road Safety Auditing and Accident Investigation. Premier’s safety and compliance is in good hands! However, it is within the events sector that Christy really shines. The 148th Open Championship, three Irish Open Golf Championships, the Giro D’italia, Grand Fondo and the City of Culture 2013 in Derry/ Londonderry (comprising over 365 events!) are just some of the well-known events in which Christy played an integral role in planning and delivering. To say Christy’s CV and experience is impressive would be an understatement. Premier has gained a fantastic asset and addition to the team.
With Christy’s arrival our Design & Consultancy service has expanded and is busier than ever. Christy’s extensive knowledge, unique level of experience and wide-ranging skills enables Premier to offer our client’s a bespoke consultancy package not offered by anyone else. We are excited for the year ahead with several events already in the pipeline. The North West 200, which has been cancelled twice due to COVID-19, will finally be taking place in May. We look forward to supporting the event, and many others, to be a success.
It is important to pause and take stock from time to time. For us, this is a time to be thankful for how far we have come.
We provide our services to so many different types of businesses and are grateful to all our clients for their business and loyalty. Thank you for your trust and confidence in our Company.
2022 will be an interesting year for Premier as we continue to grow and build on all the hard work over the past 3 years.
