Happy New Year to you all, and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

2016 was another great year for PTSG, and the coming year looks set to be just as busy, if not busier. I look forward to being able to share our company news with you through Inside PTSG and on twitter at @PTSGPLC throughout 2017.

It is particularly pleasing to look back on the recognition the Group received in 2016 for the quality service we always aim to provide. PTSG received several shortlistings at the industry’s most esteemed award ceremonies, walking away with two PFM Partnership awards for its work with Marks & Spencer and SES Engineering Services in November.

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.

In December, we announced our support of the Stoddart Review, a new report into the benefits the facilities management (FM) industry holds for UK businesses. The goal of the review is to help to raise awareness amongst senior executives across the UK about the role of FM in workplace productivity, and this partnership has been a wonderful opportunity for the Group to contribute to the wider FM industry, by helping to raise awareness of its importance for the UK business community.

You will get an appreciation of some of the work we undertook at the end of last year from our news summary below. As ever, I welcome your ideas or comments about this newsletter, and would be glad to hear about anything else we can do to help you.

Thank you for your continuing interest in the company, and I hope you find this edition of Inside PTSG of interest.

Best wishes

Paul Teasdale,
CEO, Premier Technical Group Services PLC
