Premier Range Rover Sport

Automotive

A leader in the automotive field for many years, we have worked with leading marques, including Jaguar, Land-Rover, Bentley Motors, Morgan and Ford Motor Company.

At Premier Group we offer our clients the ability to produce panels and full Body-in-White assembly to the near production process within an accelerated timescale that allows testing to take place at the earlier stage of the programme. Our panels and assemblies are produced to an exact quality standard that has propelled us to set industry standards.

We can fully support pre-production from the prototype stage or offer a bespoke low volume service. Sometimes it is only after a vehicle is built or tested that modifications are required. At Premier Group we leave excess stock on all our tools so they can be quickly inserted or re-cut without the need to produce new patterns and castings.

Producing precision quality aerospace components.

Aerospace

As a leader in the automotive field for many years, we are now endeavouring to establish ourselves as a serious player in the aerospace market. Aerospace giants such as GKN and Marshalls (Boeing), have recently benefited from our skill and expertise.

We are now looking to further extend our aerospace connections through speciality work in aluminium deep drawn pressings and our dedicated state-of-the-art laser facility. Sheet metal components such as brackets and riveted assemblies are simple turnkey operations for us and our extensive machining and pressing facilities are suited to producing struts and stiffeners for repairing damaged fairings and fuselages.

We deploy an experienced team of qualified engineers, backed up with excellent CAD facilities, and a workforce skilled in the working of all types of materials.

Working with agricultural, construction and off-highway customers.

Industrial

In addition to our well-publicised strengths within the automotive sector, we collaborate with a number of leading agricultural, construction and off-highway customers with fabricated products in many forms. We utilise our 2D and 3D (5 Axis) state-of-the-art laser facilities, and we offer a superior quality product from a basic part to volume welded and painted assemblies. We are currently developing a 5-axis laser welding process which will benefit many applications within the industrial market sectors.

As an example, we work with Creactive Design, a specialist in industrial design, product design, transport design, engineering, and manufacturing. We manufacturers the stainless steel panel systems for the Network Rail Location Case Cooling System and Cooling Block (Patent Pending) – we anticipate a national installation programme with this system.

Largest dedicated laser cutting facility

Special Projects

At Premier Group our capabilities are diverse, from the production and manufacture of the Morgan 101 sports car and the exhaust nacelles for the A100M military aircraft to12,000 torches for the 2012 London Olympic & Paralympic Games. There is not a market sector that we will not help support in the manufacture of metal products.

We have the UK’s largest dedicated laser cutting facility. As the official manufacturer of the 2012 Olympic torch, the facility was fully tested during the engineering and manufacturing of the double skinned aluminium alloy triangular torches. The apparently seamless torches, 12,100 of them, each perforated with 8,000 holes were finished in a glistening gold colour, with a burner enclosed and fuelled by a gas canister.

The complex design presented numerous technical challenges, all of which were overcome by our unique blend of innovation and experience.

Press Parts for a Photovoltaic System

Renewable Energy

The benefits of developing a company with a multi-talented workforce and a multi-faceted manufacturing facility are the diverse market sectors that we can offer our services to. Renewable energy is one such industry that is rapidly expanding. We recently manufactured high tolerance press parts of a photovoltaic system for Circadian Solar. Circadian Solar offers turnkey solar systems based on Concentrated Photovoltaics, the technology with the world’s highest efficiency and energy yield, optimised for ‘sunbelt’ regions such as North Africa or the Middle East.

We also recently conducted a feasibility study for a company manufacturing a uniquely designed wind turbine. We were commissioned to address the feasibility of manufacturing the parts using metal as opposed to the current plastics.

Nilsson Vehicle Company

Specialist Vehicles

We have collaborated with some of the world leaders. Nilsson, for example, is a leading European special vehicles company, manufacturing limousines, ambulances, and hearses. We collaborated with Nilsson, taking their prototype cars to production. We scanned and generated the surfaces to create the CAD files, and designed and manufactured the press tools for a variety of the required parts, including the roofs, doors, cantrails, sills, etc. Producing the relevant parts, we employed most of our disciplines: project management, press, sheet metal work, laser inspection and delivery to Sweden.

For the Morgan Motor Company, we handle the prototype build of bonnets, boots, and cockpits. This sees over 15 BIW units per week shipped to Morgan. Our cutting-edge computer-aided technology and our high-quality automotive prototype production use the very latest CAD design, CAE virtual development, and CAM manufacturing techniques.
