Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is delivering fire and security services at the state-of-the-art South West Institute of Technology (SWIOT).

The government has supported a small number of Institutes of Technology across the country, following a rigorous selection process. The aim is to reinvigorate the technical education landscape, especially at Levels 4 and 5, to meet the changing and complex needs of businesses. As part of the development process, Institutes of Technology have engaged with employers to identify current and emerging skills challenges.

The SWIOT draws on expertise from 12 partner organisations, including the University of Exeter, University of Plymouth, City College Plymouth, Exeter College, Petroc, Truro & Penwith College and Bridgwater & Taunton College, each investing in the development of state-of-the-art facilities for training in technical subjects to create Britain’s next generation of highly skilled technicians and engineers. The development of a Digital and Data Centre located at Exeter College is a key part of the SWIOT.

Engineers from PTSG Fire Solutions Ltd are installing a fire alarm and facilities for safeguarding people at the institute as well as ensuring everyone can access all areas. PTSG Fire Solutions Ltd, one of the Group’s four business divisions, grew considerably following the acquisition of Trinity Fire & Security Ltd in January 2019. This added ten office locations and 2,000 new customers, making PTSG a fully comprehensive provider of specialist services and one of the UK’s market leaders.
