Premier Technical Services Group PLC’s (PTSG) Electrical Services division has received an order to carry out a number of specialist services at Decathlon superstores across the UK.
Skilled engineers will be deployed to Decathlon’s 26 UK stores to carry out fixed wire testing (FWT), portable appliance testing (PAT) and lightning protection services to ensure that its employees and customers, as well as the stores themselves, are protected from electrical faults and lightning strikes. This will be no mean feat, as the average size of Decathlon superstores is around 4,000m².
Decathlon, founded in France, is the largest sporting goods retailer in the world. The company currently has over 1,100 stores across 38 countries, with its first UK store opening in 1999.
PTSG has a large portfolio of retail clients, including recent contract wins with Tesco, Morrisons and DFS. In 2016, the Group received the Partners in Retail award at PFM’s partnership awards for its outstanding work to provide fall arrest services at M&S stores across the UK.
