Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is currently delivering specialist electrical services at the Burnley warehouse of online retail giant boohoo.
Founded in 2006 by Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane, boohoo has evolved from a small retailer in Manchester to become one of the fastest growing international retailers. Boohoo likes to combine fashion with fun for 16-30-year-olds, offering them affordable prices.
The retailer has agreed a long-term lease for the site in Daventry which is scheduled to become operational in the second quarter of its 2021-22 year. The warehouse will support the group’s rapid expansion and adds to existing facilities in Burnley and Sheffield in northern England and Wellingborough in central England.
Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd are currently carrying out tests to the lightning protection system in place at boohoo’s main distribution centre in Burnley. From an initial 40 employees, the site has rapidly expanded into Burnley’s largest employer, with workforce exceeding 3,500 in 2021. PTSG’s specialist electrical testing will ensure boohoo meets its statutory obligations regarding regular testing of its lightning protection systems, ensuring the distribution centre and all employees are protected in the event of an electrical storm. It may also highlight any remedial works that are required; they can also be performed by the Group’s specialists.
