What makes us Premier?
Premier Workplace Services was established as Premier Moves Limited in 1996 by co-owners David Russinger and Jerry Marks who along with director Phil Oram developed the relocation company into one of the UK’s leading workplace change service providers.
Our divisions - Premier Moves, Premier Systems IT, Premier Interiors, Premier Storage and Premier Sustain – work together or on a standalone basis to provide a comprehensive range of move and change services that include office and IT relocation services, storage, specialist relocations, interior refurbishment and sustainable office furniture and equipment solutions.
We are forward thinking in how we manage our business. We engage closely with our clients to deliver improvements in all aspects of our services including the social, environment and financial outcomes of their moves and changes. Most recently, this has seen us win a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, become the first major relocation company to sign up to the Living Wage, set up Renew IT for redundant IT and electrical equipment and purchase Office Resale Ltd through which to sell remanufactured furniture.
