A Snapshot Into Our Evolution and Growth
Premio, which means “Prize” in Spanish, emerged as “Premio PC”, a personal computer manufacturer providing computers nationwide to many educational programs (K-12) around the nation. From its inception in 1989 to 2000, Premio pioneered and remained a trusted partner and manufacturer for many educational institutions in the United States.
As computing technology advanced and became more commoditized, Premio proved to be resilient and achieved another milestone by evolving itself from its own personal computer in 2000 into a respectable contract manufacturer – providing a variety of highly specialized "turn-key" OEM integration processes and business services for some of the world’s elite computing companies; many of which still exist today in its global operations. This monumental shift demanded Premio to move its operational infrastructure into a fully automated 150,000 square feet Los Angeles based manufacturing facility that was fully customized for ultimate flexibility and unlimited scalability. Even today Premio's world-class manufacturing facility continues to be a testament for state-of-the-art automation and assembly for many leading OEMs in computing technology.
Starting from the year 2000, “Premio PC” transformed its brand identity into “Premio Inc.” – becoming a pivotal partner and key advisor in manufacturing and servicing premier technologies companies around the world. Furthermore, Premio also restructured its mission and core values around a customer-centric business model with “total customer satisfaction” driving its core. By 2010, Premio Inc. achieved yet another milestone by successfully engaging with over 50+ customers worldwide ranging from enterprise level companies to start-ups that were eventually acquired by major fortune 500 companies.
In 2011 Premio decided to once again refine its business operations and developed more advanced technologies by investing into the research and development of home grown purpose-built Premio products in:
Today, Premio has successfully evolved into a full-service technology company that specializes in top-notch computing designs, scalable manufacturing for both variety and volume, and robust end-to-end business services that result in streamlined growth and success with global expansion (Design - Manufacturing - Services)
