AN IMPORTANT LESSON IN LIFE-LONG RELATIONSHIPS
It has been said that the best friendships are those that have been forged over a lifetime. Over a decade ago Premier was founded by two executives who grew up in the same small town, attended the same schools, and who lived on the same street. From a friendship that was initially formed on neighborhood streets, playgrounds, and athletic fields, Premier was founded almost two decades ago by two life-long friends, Kevin Creasman and Charlie Irwin. After years of individual success they combined their successful skills and business philosophy to create Premier Industrial Services Group, LLC. They are committed to developing a business based upon integrity, trust, outstanding service, and business partnerships that will mirror their own relationship.
