The PRM Group has been recognised at the annual Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards where it was named ‘Logistics & Warehousing Specialist of the Year.’
Colin Davis, Operations Manager, was presented with the award, sponsored by MAN Truck & Bus UK and RK Trucks Centre, at a glittering ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in South Belfast, an event attended by almost 600 guests from all sectors of the transport and logistics industry and compered by BBC NI News presenter Sarah Travers and Actor and Comedian Tim McGarry.
Organised by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4SM (NI) Ltd, the event, returning after a two year absence because of the Covid-19 pandemic, is Ireland’s premier platform of recognition for those operating in the industry; it celebrates all the hard work, determination, and ongoing investment that make the industry what it is today.
For more than 35 years, PRM Group has been at the forefront of Ireland’s food industry and has been able to celebrate many successes and milestones throughout that time. Founded by Philip and Lynne Morrow, the company has grown from strength to strength by identifying opportunity, embracing change and developing long lasting relationships.
Employing over 250 people and based in state-of-the-art facilities on the Lissue Industrial Estate in Lisburn, County Antrim, the company’s dedicated warehousing team operate on a 24/7 basis, processing on average 300,000 cases of products a week from market leading brands, and preparing orders for customers across the retail, wholesale and food service sectors.
Earlier this year, PRM made a significant investment in upgrading its warehouse facilities by installing a more energy efficient refrigeration system that uses 30% less electricity. It has also installed an automated pallet wrap, allowing the team to quickly complete orders ready for dispatch and distribution. The company has plans to further expand its already extensive warehousing facility to include over 100,000 sq ft of additional space.
