Global Sales recognised with Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade for Premier Coatings Ltd
In 2017, Premier Coatings Ltd was proud to have been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. The prestigious award was won for outstanding growth in overseas sales in the last three years.
Founded in 1982, Premier Coatings Ltd specialises in the manufacture and supply of high quality anti-corrosion, sealing and waterproofing products for the protection of buried, submerged or exposed steel and concrete. Their product brands are well known for ease of use, reliability and long-service life. Customers include the offshore, construction and civil engineering industries as well as the water, electric and gas utilities.
In 1997 Premier Coatings Ltd was acquired by anti-corrosion and sealing specialist Winn & Coales International Ltd and has thrived as a subsidiary ever since offering an alternative range of products to the parent company’s global market. Based just outside Headcorn in Smarden, Kent, the company’s products are manufactured to meet the requirements of national and international standards as well as commercial specifications and have gained a well-earned reputation for consistent high quality.
The steady increase in the demand for their products has prompted heavy investment with the recent installation of an additional plant in their factory. The new plant has already improved efficiency and reduced waste.
The Queen’s Award was earned as a result of the combined efforts of the company’s UK staff and their global network of agents offering proven and cost-effective solutions for their customers.
Winn & Coales International Ltd Chairman David Winn OBE announced “I am delighted and very proud that our subsidiary Premier Coatings Ltd, has achieved this prestigious award and my thanks go to all of our dedicated staff, global agents and loyal customers, for helping to make this happen”.
