PRM has been recognised at the annual Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards where it was named ‘Chilled Operator of the Year.’
Colin Davis, Logistics Manager, was presented with the award, sponsored by Thermo King, 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 the BBC’s Mark Simpson.
Organised by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4SM (NI) Ltd, the event, which was first staged way back in 2001, 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 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 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.
As a reliable and reputable partner of choice for many leading chilled & frozen food brands across Ireland, Great Britain and Europe, PRM has continued to work at the forefront of the chilled and frozen food industry and has played a key role in developing many brands which have now become established household names, such as Muller, Alpro, Kinder, Cully & Sully, Cookstown and Galberts.
Over the past two years, PRM has brought five new suppliers into its brand portfolio and has established trading arrangements with two additional retailers in Ireland as part of their respective strategies for continuity of supply in response to Brexit.
The company has also acquired an additional site at Moira Road, Lisburn to begin the development of a new facility in line with increased demand for its services and its strategic ambition to further grow the business. This will include over 100,000sq ft of additional warehousing facilities, additional trailer parking, new office premises, a workshop, wash bay and refuelling area, creating 50+ new jobs in the local economy.
