Hull-based, leading offsite manufacturer, Premier Modular has launched several community initiatives as part of its commitment to make a positive impact on the local area. This includes the sponsorship of local football and rugby clubs as well as implementing a regular beach clean-up operation.

To support rising local sport stars, the manufacturer has kicked off the summer season by sponsoring Kingswood United Cyclones football club and Myton Warriors rugby club.

At Kingswood United, Premier Modular has provided shirt, pitch, banner and goal flag sponsorship for the summer tournaments and 2024/5 season. This sponsorship has been instrumental to provide team kits and support the Cyclones to foster an inclusive and active community by encouraging young people to get involved in the sport. To build a strong connection with the team, Premier Modular Group CEO, David Harris, participated in pre-match training as a stand in goalkeeper.

Premier Modular are also proudly sponsoring Myton Warriors U14s rugby team and further supporting individual player development through the sponsorship of rising rugby star, Jack Burton, helping to fund his training kit for the season.

David Harris, CEO of Premier Modular Group, said:
“As a business we are about more than just revenue generation. We are truly committed to supporting our employees and local communities and ensure the decisions we make create and inspire positive opportunities and environments. It’s great to be able to support Kingswood United and Myton Warriors and help players get involved in a sport that they are passionate about.”

Premier Modular prides itself with leading on sustainability in the modular industry and has ambitious targets to reach net zero by 2035. The company’s approach to sustainability spans more than its operations and in May it arranged and carried out a beach clean for its employees at Hornsea Beach, just six miles from the Premier Modular site.

With equipment provided by East Riding Council, the Premier Modular team accumulated 15 bags of waste including disregarded plastic items, drink cans and dog waste. All the waste collected was sorted and recycled at the Premier Modular site.

“It is our duty to care for our environment, and we have embedded sustainability into the company with ambitious targets and policies, such as zero waste to landfill. However, this doesn’t stop at the day-to-day running of the business. We are proud to have initiated a beach clean-up which we plan to continue to do throughout the year with the next event already scheduled for August, ensuring local beaches are cleaner and safer.”
