The company also focuses on expanding investments in existing businesses and developing technology to boost service efficiency.
Jatuporn Wilaikaew, Chief Executive Officer of PRI, is optimistic that PRI shares would be warmly received on the first trading day on the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET).

PRI’s services are propelled by the adoption of modern technology with the PRIMO Plus application developed to connect and provide services to customers. The company has also leveraged on customer bases from Origin Property PCL, and general customers which entered into long-term and occasional service contracts with PRI.
Those factors help securing revenue, generating continuous growth, and elevating the company as the leader in complete real estate solution provision with sustainable growth as planned. The company’s services come in three main business groups:
