Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG) will continue to deliver maintenance works for global car manufacturer Toyota.
PTSG’s South Suspended Access division’s contract was renewed following a recommendation from Toyota’s onsite team at its Great Burgh offices to its new facilities management company.
Scott Hawtrey, divisional director at PTSG, said: “We are delighted to have been asked to continue to deliver annual maintenance and testing of the façade access equipment at Toyota’s facility in Great Burgh. There are four visits per year scheduled, one of these being a load test.
“The onsite team at the site transferred over and recommended us to the new facilities management company. It is a fantastic testament to the work we have delivered on the site that we were recommended to continue to deliver the works needed.”
Toyota’s decision to establish a manufacturing operation in the UK was announced in 1989 and Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd was established in December that year.
As well as offices in Great Burgh and across the UK, there are two manufacturing plants representing a total investment in excess of £2.2bn and currently more than 3,800 people are employed.
The vehicle manufacturing plant is located at Burnaston in Derbyshire and the engine manufacturing plant is located at Deeside in North Wales. The first car, a Carina E, drove off the Burnaston production line in 1992.
