At Premier Tech, people and technologies connect in lasting, trans formative ways, giving life to products and services that help feed, protect, and improve our world.
Premier Tech, which is 100 years old, is among the largest packaging equipment manufacturers in the world with more than 5,000 team-members and 28 offices in North America, Europe, Asia, or Oceania. The company is global but also local to meet its customers’ expectations.
While being a global company, Premier Tech believes the true value of its worldwide presence rests in the deep roots its teams have established locally. Being local translates into tailored offers, but most importantly, custom support throughout the life cycle of the products.
Well-known in the industry for its state-of-the-art equipment and its complete packaging lines for small- and large-scale production, Premier Tech is constantly integrating the latest innovative and high-value systems leveraging the full potential of technology, including robotics.
Premier Tech’s century of experience in automation has allowed it to sharpen its focus on four main industries: agriculture, nutrition, organics and industrial.
Rising to different challenges in each of these sectors has helped the company to engineer profitable, perfectly adapted solutions that maximize efficiency for each customer.
Premier Tech remains committed to creating sustainable solutions that help improve the efficiency of manufacturing facilities in the nutrition, agricultural, industrial and organics market sectors. It offers a wide range of solutions, ranging from weighing, feeding, bagging, case packing all the way through palletizing and load securing.
In 2017, the company acquired Prairie Engineering, a leader in the industry of agricultural processing. With its unique knowledge of seed and grain quality issues, it designs facilities as well as processing and conditioning lines with the customer’s reality in mind.
As seed experts, all team-members have the expertise to clean, separate, sort, bag and palletize all types of seeds and grains with high efficiency and accuracy. Premier Tech can help its clients develop pure products that are almost perfect in homogeneity, allowing customers to enjoy their crops without risks.
From corn to soybean, grass seeds to rice or even pulses to almonds, Premier Tech understands its customers’ business and the challenges they are facing.
It is these results that Premier Tech can deliver with a large equipment portfolio cultivating a flexible approach with a focus on customer needs, from cleaning & sorting to material handling and packaging passing through drying and bulk storage.
In 2021, Bu¨hler & Premier Tech introduced their latest automated packaging solution, CHRONOS OML-1060. The solution is the first of many to be developed through the two companies’ bulk packaging equipment joint venture, created in September 2019.
The CHRONOS OML-1060 is a fully automatic packaging solution for the grain, food, pet food and feed processing industries with the same design and technology used in the companies’ existing solutions but is more affordable. Fully enclosed to ensure safety and limit operator interaction, without compromising accuracy or reliability but optimized for flexibility, quality, accuracy, and cost effectiveness, the packaging system has a compact operational footprint to optimize floorspace, operation and maintenance.
This first open-mouth bagger introduced by Premier Tech and Bu¨hler can manage 20 to 50kg bags at speeds up to 600 bags of any type per hour, including non-laminated poly-woven packages and most common bag closing systems.
“What is magical about this partnership for our customers is to benefit from Premier Tech’s technological know-how, Bu¨hler’s operational know-how, and unparalleled customer support from two organizations with a global footprint,” said André Noreau, chief executive officer of Premier Tech’s Systems and Automation business.
With its unique knowledge of seed and grain quality issue, Premier Tech offers its clients an array of agriculture engineering solutions to grow their business. It designs facilities as well as processing and conditioning lines with its customers’ reality in mind.
