Chris Stanyon, Premier’s Operations Director comments, “The new Wellingborough site is a significant investment and demonstrates Premier’s commitment to the future. Not only does it improve and enhance our ability to service customers both locally and around the UK, it has also created several local job opportunities.”
Premier’s Wellingborough site will also host a Schelling FK6 plastic, and composite panel saw, a Cauhe GH 366 heavy-duty guillotine and a wall-mounted Streibig Saw. Further enhancing Premier’s ability to facilitate customer orders, cutting products such as Plexiglas, Foamalux, ACM, Marlon FSX and many more to customer requirements, all from a centralised location.
