Premier Guarantee says it is one of only three providers of warranties for new homes in Britain. Founded by Gary Devaney in 1996, the firm gained accreditation to offer warranties in 2001 after a three-year application process. It now claims 27% of the market in Ireland and a growing share in the UK. Customers include Comer Homes and Britannia Homes. It has also launched a new version of its warranty scheme, called Hallmark, in partnership with local councils. Sales have grown 132% a year from an annualised £262,000 in 2000 to £3.3m in 2003.
