They’ve been trying to destroy us for 50 days, but the UA people are heroically resisting. We fear nothing, we know what we’re fighting for. We are brave enough to put an end to evil. Stop feeding the RU military machine. Help UA with weapons. Then peace & good will win faster. pic.twitter.com/WdDbZsvZ4e— Володимир Зеленський (@ZelenskyyUa) April 14, 2022

Premierwerke AG., Fahrrad & Maschinenfabrik (J.C. Braun), Wächterstarße 2, Nuremberg
Premier was founded by Messers Hillmann, Herbert and Cooper in Coventry. The Nuremberg branch was created in 1898 and by 1900 was producing as many bicycles as Hercules, Victoria, Mars and Triumph combined. Arno Dietrich, founder of Ardie, was closely involved, ("Meister bei den Premier-Fahrradwerken"). In 1911 Premier merged with with Christian Braun's company, but the new organisation failed in 1913.
The Nuremburg machines were powered by 270cc two-strokes and sidevalve four-strokes of 293cc and 348cc.
Premier had another Continental branch in Eger, Bohemia (later Czechoslovakia). The factory there became the largest in the country.
