1882 – 1992
The company was founded in 1992 at Marley Farm, Smarden, just outside Headcorn in Kent.
From the beginning it specialised in manufacturing a range of corrosion prevention and waterproofing systems manufactured to ASTM, BS, BBA and DIN specifications for the utilities, civil engineering and construction industries. Premseal water and gasproofing membranes, Premtape, petrolatum tapes and and Premcote bitumen laminate tapes, are some of its best known brand names.
1992 – 2002
The company continued to grow steadily over the next few years at the same time increasing its product range and customer base.
In 1997 Premier Coatings was acquired by anti-corrosion and sealing specialist Winn & Coales International, who realised the great potential of owning another well known corrosion prevention and waterproofing brand in the market place.
2002 – 2012
With the added knowledge and global trading experience brought to the table by Winn & Coales International, plus additional product lines such as SeaShield, Archco, Protal, Premstrip, Premier Butyl Tapes and Premier Heat Shrink Sleeves, the following years brought an expansion of sales and trading in new territories.
In 2010 the company launched an improved Premcote Tape with the useful feature of a visual guide for obtaining the required 55% overlap, printed along the length of each roll. This printed guide also gives an instant identification of which tape was used so is very convenient for future maintenance etc.
2012 – Present Day
In 2013, as further proof of the high quality of their manufacturing processes, Premier Coatings obtained CE Marking for their Premseal waterproofing and gasproofing products.
Due to an increasing worldwide demand for its quality anti-corrosion and sealing products, in 2015 the company invested in a new production plant which not only increased capacity and improved efficiency but also reduced waste, giving both financial and environmental benefits at the same time.
In 2017 the company proudly achieved a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade. This prestigious award was won for outstanding growth in overseas sales over the preceeding three years and presented by HRH The Duke of Kent KG in November 2017.
In 2018 Premier Coatings proved its commitment to reducing its environmental impact again by gaining Environmental Standard ISO 14001:2015, covering all products manufactured at the Smarden site.
