A BARNSLEY business which specialises in bespoke metal work has seen business quadruple in the last decade.

Fabrications firm Premier Engineering has not only created work in Barnsley town centre, but also London’s Leicester Square Gardens and the National Theatre.

The company is now looking to create up to ten new jobs.

Managing director Brent Richards said the recent work for Barnsley Council – stainless steel balustrades, handrails, benches and other work at the new Pinfold Steps development - followed another major contract for the borough authority; three steel sculptures on the Dodworth by-pass, put up in 2006.

He said: “I’m really proud that we’re creating features of Barnsley that will hopefully be part of the town’s landscape long in to the future.”

The company makes and installs structural and architectural metalwork in mild steel, aluminium, stainless steel, brass and glass for clients in a range of sectors from hotels to construction.

Premier’s turnover has risen from around £350,000 in 2002-03 to £1.8 million last year and is expected to top £2 million next year.
