• Premier expands at three locations

        • Premier Paper has announced a new 63,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Dartford showing its commitment to, and belief in, the print and communication industry. Dartford is Premier’s centre of operations for London and the whole of the South East. 

          Dartford holds a range of wide-format roll and large format sheet media for the display market as well as a choice of display products, including foam boards, aluminium composite material (ACM) and acrylic sheets in various thicknesses, all available to be converted to an exact size and quantity as required by its customers. Investment for the site has seen the installation of a Striebig wall saw, controlled by optimising software to ensure the most efficient and cost-effective conversion of products.

          David Jones, Group Marketing Director said, “Premier is a very agile company and we are able to move quickly in order to support the changing needs of our customers. This has led to a significant investment programme in developing market sectors and in a number of geographical areas across the UK where we are refining our service offer and increasing the choice of products available for our customers.” 

          In September 2017 Premier opened a new 16,000 square foot branch in Bristol to support business growth throughout the South West. March 2020 will see Premier more than double the size of its Bristol operation to meet the needs of its customers. The branch now has 35,000 square feet of warehouse capacity holding over 10,000 pallets. 

          Over 5,000 tonnes of products are now held in Bristol, supported by a further 40,000 tonnes of product held in the Premier network and all available for next day delivery. 

          The new expanded Bristol operation will also support the growing demand for packaging, wide format and display products with local stocks and specialists on hand to offer customers help and guidance.

          The new expanded Bristol operation will also continue to support Premier’s Newton Abbot branch, servicing customers throughout Devon and Cornwall. 

          Six new positions have also been created in the Bristol team over the last 2 years, both within the logistics operation and also in the customer service function, where packaging and display graphics specialists are on hand to work closely with customers. Phil Trudgeon joined the Bristol team in February, as Area sales Director, bringing with him many years of experience and market knowledge. 

          In the North East, Premier’s Washington branch and its satellite logistics hub, based in Carlisle, services customers throughout the north of England and into the Scottish borders. With growth year on year, Premier has now acquired an adjoining unit and has doubled the available warehouse space to 11,000 square feet, improving efficiency and customer service levels to support future development plans.
