Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been contracted to provide specialist services for Amazon at two further sites in the retail giant’s UK network.
Amazon.com, formed by Jeff Bezos, has been referred to as ‘one of the most influential economic and cultural forces in the world’. In 2018, its two-day delivery services, Amazon Prime, surpassed 100 million subscribers worldwide. By the end of 2021 Amazon will employ 55,000 people across the UK.
Amazon has a number of warehouses, or fulfilment centres, strategically placed throughout the UK to cater for its ever-increasing number of customers. Each of these centres of operation is vast and employs its own workforce from operations managers to engineers, HR and IT roles to employees handling customer orders. PTSG Electrical Services Ltd has been contracted to install a brand-new lightning protection system at Amazon’s fulfilment centres in Bracknell, Berkshire and Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
PTSG has provided a variety of specialist services for Amazon on a number of previous occasions. At the end of 2020, engineers from PTSG Fire Solutions Ltd installed a new fire alarm system at Amazon’s Swindon fulfilment centre. This illustrates the Group’s multiple services capability. Increasingly, PTSG is being called upon to meet customers’ complete specialist services requirements, either at a single site or many sites nationwide.
