2016 has been another exceptional year for Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG), with the Group continuing to build its reputation for providing an outstanding customer service, an unyielding commitment to health and safety, and the drive for impressive business growth.
Health and safety always takes precedence in everything PTSG does, and this year the Group won an international safety award from the British Safety Council, as well as a RoSPA Gold Award for its excellent health and safety standards, making this the fifth consecutive year the company has been recognised by both organisations. PTSG’s strong reputation for safe working also resulted in it taking pride of place on the front cover of PFM magazine’s April issue, with an article on its safe working at height practices.
Other industry publications have been abuzz about PTSG’s work this year, with numerous mentions of impressive contract wins, accreditations and awards. In particular, the Group’s bespoke software programme, PTSG Clarity, really got the industry talking, with features detailing its success in This Week in FM and PFM magazine. There was even a mention of a PTSG van’s role as an extra in the BBC’s one-off Goodnight Sweetheart special!
Other than its acting debut, the company has had further brushes with fame this year, not least with PTSG’s MOUSE making the acquaintance of Alexander Armstrong. Thousands of PTSG’s customer service mascots attended FM industry awards ceremonies this year, and the Pointless host took a particular liking to the Group’s squeaky mascot.
PTSG received several shortlistings at the industry’s most esteemed awards ceremonies in 2016, and in November walked away with two PFM Partnership awards for its work with Marks & Spencer and SES Engineering Services. PTSG CEO Paul Teasdale also had another solid year, after being named the IOD’s Director of the Year and the Yorkshire Post’s Entrepreneur of the Year.
As for business performance, PTSG is stronger than ever, reporting solid growth and hundreds of impressive contract wins throughout 2016. Its acquisition of UK Dry Risers and UK Dry Risers Maintenance in July has added yet another specialist service to the Group’s portfolio, and introduced the benefits of its bundled service provision to many new customers. The contract renewal rate now stands at 88 per cent – the highest yet achieved in the Group’s nine-year history.
Having already published a strong interim report earlier this year detailing impressive organic growth and high returns, PTSG looks forward to continuing this trend well into 2017.
We would like to wish you all – customers, supply chain partners, stakeholders, our people and media contacts – a very merry Christmas and a happy and successful New Year!
