Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has carried out a lightning protection installation project for Toyota, following significant investment in the carmaker’s Derbyshire factory.
A £240 million redevelopment has completely upgraded the Burnaston plant, and marks the 25th anniversary of the first car rolling off the site’s production line. Today, a car can come off the Derbyshire factory’s production line every 60 seconds, and the factory even produced a limited edition Auris Hybrid car to celebrate this special milestone.
PTSG installed a static lightning protection system to the factory’s new paint mix room which will protect both the building and Toyota’s 3,800-strong team from lightning strikes and power surges in bad weather.
The group’s Electrical Services division has carried out a series of lightning protection works at Toyota’s Burnaston plant in recent years. This is just one of many contracts the Group has renewed thanks to its high-quality provision of niche services, boasting an impressive contract renewal rate of 88 per cent.
