It has been a real pleasure over the last week to have a delegation from our sister company, Abacus, over here in the UK on a knowledge gain trip.
Abacus are a modular manufacturer and construction company in South Africa with depots opening in a number of other African countries.
The knowledge gain mission looked at Premier’s product offerings, market sectors, people structure and processes.
Abacus are undergoing a significant growth period both in market share in South Africa and also by entering new geographical regions. I have no doubt that looking at how Premier design, manufacture and process their products will help them develop further. As Abacus start operating in ‘Alternative Building Technology’ (Complex hybrid modular build) they will be able to use many of the issues studied last week.
Being part of a large and successful group has many advantages and it was good to see the tangible benefits from this one element in operation.
