PTSG celebrates 10 years of successive growth
23 March 2017
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) celebrated its 10th anniversary in February, marking a decade of successive growth and expansion which has led to the company’s position as one of Europe’s leading specialist service providers.
PTSG was founded by John Foley, Paul Teasdale and Bob Morton in 2007, with the objective of becoming the UK’s leading provider of specialist services through a combination of organic growth and acquiring businesses in niche markets.
Over the last ten years, the business has grown rapidly to become the leading supplier of façade access and fall arrest equipment services, electrical testing, high-level cleaning and training solutions for over 15,000 customers.
The company cares for more than 150,000 assets worldwide, and boasts a 450-strong team operating from 16 UK-wide locations to deliver a complete solution for its clients.
The strongly acquisitive nature of the business means that PTSG has been able to expand its service offering into complementary markets and broaden its geographic reach, so that it has a truly nationwide coverage.
Since conception it has acquired no fewer than 21 businesses, beginning with the access company National Cradle Maintenance Limited in 2007, before branching out to companies providing lightning protection, steeplejack services and high level cleaning throughout the past decade.
Most recently, PTSG acquired UK Dry Risers Ltd. and UK Dry Risers Maintenance Ltd, signalling a further broadening of the company’s service provision into another specialist market, carrying out dry and wet riser installations and maintenance for high-rise buildings, commercial centres and stadiums across the country.
CEO Paul Teasdale believes PTSG’s approach to providing the best possible customer service is the number one factor in the business’s ongoing success:
“Customer service has been PTSG’s main priority since its formation. We exist to serve our customers by delivering consistently excellent services into specialist markets, and always look to measure our success through our customers’ perspective rather than our own.”
Paul added: “PTSG was created to fill a gap in the market for demand for a specialist business offering niche services. Today we are the UK’s foremost provider of specialist services.
"Since 2007 we have prided ourselves on recruiting the brightest talents in the industry as well as investing heavily in training and development as we believe that being a great place to work makes us a great company to do business with.
“Looking to the future, as we continue to grow, we will continue to deliver based on our business philosophy of delivering well and delivering safely.
"I am confident that with our current resource pool and our approach to business PTSG will remain at the forefront of the industry, and as facilities management continues to evolve, we will evolve with it.”
In 2016, PTSG became a key supporter on thought leadership by backing the Stoddart Review, a report into the benefits the facilities management (FM) industry holds for UK businesses, and how workplace environments can drive and improve performance.
