Premier Forest Products Short-Listed For Two Awards

Newport-based timber importer Premier Forest Products has been
short-listed for two prestigious awards this month, one for the
company's rapid growth and the other in recognition of its
entrepreneurial flair.

Premier, which imports premium timber and timber products from
around the world and has reached a remarkable turnover of nearly
£ 30 million in just twelve years, has made the final of national
newspaper The Western Mail's Fast Growth 50 Business Awards.

The company will find out on Friday May 20th if it has won the
sought after Excellence in Growth Award at an evening ceremony,
to be held at Cardiff International Arena. Judges for the
Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, sponsored by Ernst and Young,
will also meet this week to decide whether Premier Forest will win
its Southern regional heat and be put forward for the next national
level of the contest.

Nigel Williams, Director at Premier Forest Products,
says of the double award selection;

“May 1st marked our company's twelfth birthday, and within the
same week we found out that we'd been short-listed for two high
profile awards, so it was a triple celebration.

From the company's inception, we have been committed to providing
the best woods and panel products to our clients, from plywoods to
MDF, to hardwoods sourced from Russia and beyond. It seems this principle has paid off as our company is flourishing and our business
peers are praising our strategy and vision.

“If we do win these awards, it will be down to the quality of our wood
and the hard work of all of the employees at Premier Forest Products,
so the whole company will be celebrating in any awards successes.

Building up a thriving business is often a hard slog, so to be
recognised for doing a good job is pretty special, especially
in our sector, as we timber companies tend to be more
‘head-down, behind-the-scenes' types of business.”
