28 Years Later
Mar 24, 2017
Launched in 1989, Premier Windows and Conservatories, Oswestry is this month celebrating its 28-year anniversary. The family-run company’s journey, spanning almost three decades, has helped it to build a first-class reputation locally for quality workmanship, attention to detail and excellent after-sales service.
March 2017 marks 28 years since duo Paul and Caroline Chenery, featuring a perm and other questionable 80’s attire, embarked on the new adventure of opening a local Glazing installation company.
With a humble beginning the pair originally started out operating from home, quickly expanding to open their first showroom at 75 Beatrice Street, Oswestry in 1990. It was a modest team, with Caroline taking the role of Saleswoman and Administration, and Paul Surveying and fitting.
By the turn of the year 2000, Premier Windows and Conservatories had grown vastly, prompting the move to a much larger showroom in Smithfield, and were employing an expanded team of eight Fitters.
Apples don’t usually fall far from the tree, and in 2003, the couple’s eldest son Ben became Premier’s General Manager, having worked his way up from a Fitter. Ben’s promotion was then swiftly followed by the appointment of Andrew Turner, the company’s very much valued Administrator, who joined in 2004.
2008 marked two more huge milestones for the company, seeing both the opening of its current showroom in Moreton Business Park, Gledrid, and in taking the exciting step to become a member of the UK-wide Conservatory Outlet Network.
Enjoying further growth since then, the company now offers a range of some of the most innovative products in the industry, including triple glazing and energy rated windows, bi-folding, French and stable doors as well as modern Conservatories and Orangeries.
Caroline Chenery, Director, said “We’re extremely proud of our history as a long-standing, family-run business at a time when that’s becoming increasingly rare. We combine traditional values with a modern commitment to environmentally friendly practices and modern designs.”
“We’re delighted to be celebrating 28 years since it all began and looking back at what we have achieved in that time. It doesn’t feel like all that long ago when we were working from our own living room!”
“We’ve been thrilled with the support of the Conservatory Outlet Network throughout a significant period of growth for our company. Looking to the future, our focus will be the same as it has always been, – on transforming the homes of our customers and providing the best service we possibly can.”
Andy Miller, Business Development Director at Conservatory Outlet, concludes: “We feel extremely privileged to have witnessed and supported the team at Premier since they became part of our independent Network of retailers back in 2008. Paul and Caroline have always worked hard to provide the customer with a top class service and we look forward to many more years of a successful relationship with them.”
