Coatings firm marks milestone

Premier Coatings is celebrating 40 years of trading this year. Founded in 1982 and operating from Smarden in Kent, the firm specialises in the manufacture and supply of a wide range of corrosion prevention and chemical resistant coatings, linings, and waterproofing systems.

The firm supplies reliable and cost-effective products to sectors like oil and gas, utilities and construction – and in compliance with national, ISO, and commercial standards. For example, the Premseal™ range of water-proofing and gas-proofing products is CE and UKCA marked. Compliance with ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 quality and environmental management systems is also standard. In 1997 Premier Coatings was acquired by anti-corrosion and sealing specialist Winn & Coales International, where it continued to prosper and in 2017 achieved a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade.

Steve Crawley, MD of Premier Coatings said, “This major milestone of 40 years could not have been achieved without the support of our employees, distributors, clients and the continual development of the company and its products. We are proud of our past and look forward to an exciting and successful future together.” The firm’s 40-year success is a story of technical expertise coupled with high-quality, long-lasting products underpinned by continued investment in new manufacturing methods and technology.
