Hodge Clemco has acquired Premier Equipment Services, a leading North East based supplier of surface finishing equipment for the marine and offshore industries. The company acquisition took place in September 2008 and the managing director of Premier, Joe Hughes, has joined the team at Hodge Clemco to ensure all the customers of Premier Equipment Services are maintained to the same high levels of customer service. Hodge Clemco’s acquisition of Premier Equipment Services is the perfect marriage for both companies, allowing us to develop our already extensive customer base, offering a larger range of competitive products into the surface finishing arena.
