Bernard Powell, the owner of Premier Group had his own small landscaping business in 2003 when he bought Premier Pavers, hoping to offer a wider variety of pavers to tradies just like him. Before long, Premier Pavers had expanded to incorporate Premier Bricks and built key accounts with major retailers including Mitre 10 and Bunnings Warehouse. Eventually these partnerships led to the development of exclusive product lines for Bunnings Warehouse that continue to be sold throughout New Zealand and Australia. Now, Premier Group is expanding again to grow the latest branch of the business, Premier Landscapes. With the incorporation of Premier Landscapes, customers can have their brick, pavement and landscaping needs delivered by one company. Not only does this simplify and streamline clients’ projects, it also increases Premier Group’s market share and profitability.
The rapid growth and success of the company has earned Premier Group numerous awards and Bernard has become a keynote speaker, regarded by the business world as a ‘Culture First’ Guru. With strong visions and values that prioritise employee happiness, health and passion as well as exceptional service, it is little surprise that Premier Group has become the leading manufacturer of bricks and pavers across New Zealand, as well as major international players in the industry. As a company, Premier Group is committed to beautifying the world through sustainability, nurturing the environment and supporting the local and national economy.
