Palmers Brewery – A Story of Heritage & History

Palmers Brewery have been brewing fine cask ales in Bridport, Dorset since 1794 and are the only thatched brewery in the country. Palmers passion and quality of brewing has been recognised many times over their 228 year history with multiple awards for their fine ales.

One of the UK’s best independent brewers and with a solid family heritage, the company also has expanded into wine, whisky, gin and cider – through their partnership family friends and sixth generation of Master Cider, Sheppys, to produce the renowned Dorset Orchards Cider.

With 53 iconic pubs in idyllic locations across Dorset, Devon and Somerset, the name has become synonymous with quality and prestige.

Wessex Electricals have worked with Palmers Brewery for over ten years. Our relationship is built on firm principles of trust, expertise and high quality of service. We are proud to deliver electrical contracting solutions to Palmers, from small remedial works and electrical testing to full scale complex electrical projects in line with their growth and expectations.

Working alongside the electricals teams, Wessex Fire & Security have been responsible for the installation, service and maintenance of many of the fire alarms and fire protection systems for the Palmers portfolio of pubs and domestic properties for over a decade.

Wayne Causley, Company Surveyor at Palmers Brewery said “I have been with Palmers since 1996; we are very much a family run, independent business. The benefit of working with Wessex is that, as they are also a family owned business, they understand the intricacies of our business and our expectations. They are always on the front foot with electrical, fire & security solutions both to ensure the day to day safety and compliance of our portfolio, and also for future projects and developments.”
