As usual Premier have allocated to each member of staff an amount which they can donate to a charity, or charities, of their choice. The charities chosen for 2017 are:
FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE HOSPICE
CHILDREN IN NEED
MAKE A WISH
HELP FOR HEROES
Thanks also to our customers and agents who have supported us through 2017.
Premier has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Premier Pallet Systems have been selling Palomats since 1997, and we were delighted to be awarded the Palomat Dealer of the Year. We’re a small team and everybody contributes to the sales effort, so it’s nice to receive recognition from colleagues in the industry.
We are always very pleased to welcome visits from our distributors and this month has been extremely busy.
We had a visit from our Belgian distributor, Willy van Geert who was accompanied by Rik Pysson and Luc Op de Beeck. The following week we welcomed our Swiss Agent, Heinz Wyrsch who also introduced us to his new colleague, Markus Streuli and last week we were visited by our Australian agent, Bob van der Wild.
It is always useful for our agents/distributors to visit us and see machines in-build at our factory and to discuss sales and marketing strategies with our staff.
It is that time of year when we are busily preparing for the International IMHX logistics show at Birmingham 19th – 22nd March. As one of 400 exhibitors we will be displaying our V Changer and also a Palomat Pallet Dispenser. New this year we will be showing our recently launched Clamp Changer. This year the show will be opened by World land speed record breaker Richard Noble, OBE. If you get the chance, visit our stand at location 18 P5 and see for yourself the build quality and innovation of our pallet inverters and stackers.
With all the downbeat news about how much is being imported into the UK from China we are really pleased to be building a healthy Export business to China. This has recently been boosted by some significant orders for our Pallet Changer and also our FSDC Pallet Inverters. Selling to China offers new challenges and also good rewards. Our trade with the Chinese has been very encouraging. Our high build quality has been well received in, what for us, continues to be an expanding market.
