In the dynamic and ever-evolving world of home improvement and architectural innovation, Premier Frames, a venerable Leicester-based company, recently celebrated a landmark 25th anniversary – a testament to their enduring commitment to excellence and innovation in the industry. This special occasion was marked by a visit to Ultraframe, their principal supplier, symbolising a partnership foundational to Premier Frames’ success and growth.

Since its inception in 1998, Premier Frames has distinguished itself as not merely a fabricator but as a beacon of innovation and quality, having crafted over 40,000 Ultraframe roofs. Their expertise spans the entire Ultraframe product range, extending to aluminium windows and doors through their sister company, Innovation Aluminium, thereby positioning Premier Frames as a key player across most of the UK.

The visionary leadership of Founder Dean Ward, alongside Directors Josh Ward and Andy Berrington, has been instrumental in steering Premier Frames from its humble beginnings in a modest Leicester unit to becoming the region’s premier Ultraframe trade fabricator. Dean Ward’s reflections on their journey highlight a relentless pursuit of excellence, a hands-on approach, and a deep understanding of conservatory design, fabrication, and installation. This approach established them as a trusted partner to local installers and laid a robust foundation for their expansive growth.

Today, Premier Frames stands at the forefront of embracing innovative solutions, notably Ultraframe’s hup! building system. This venture into off-site constructed products represents a strategic response to changing homeowner expectations and demands, positioning Premier Frames as pioneers in a burgeoning market.
