A look inside Premier Tech’s new headquarters for the Systems and Automation group.

Premier Tech, based in Canada, has unveiled the new headquarters for its Systems and Automation business group in Montgomery. The company says its $33 million investment marks its commitment to its customers and the U.S. market.

The 167,000-square-foot facility will become Premier Tech’s new solution hub for its American-based clients, allowing for increased reaction time and a closer relationship, enhancing the customer experience.

“The opening of this world-class facility is the culmination of many months of hard work for our teams in Riviere-du-Loup as well as here, in Montgomery, with the contribution of our local partners like the Chambless King Architects,” said Simon Roy, president and chief operating officer of Premier Tech Systems and Automation. “Our new U.S. headquarters reinforce our commitment to modernize our sites around the world and enhance our customer experience across the United States.”

Premier Tech recently also invested $13 million in new technology at its manufacturing center in Utah. The company launched a modernization plan in 2020, which has created 55 jobs and secured 78 jobs at its current Montgomery facility — for a total of 133 production and office team members. The new headquarters could foster further investments that would double the workforce by 2028.

“Premier Tech will leverage Montgomery’s position as a burgeoning hub for advanced logistics, technology and transportation to expand its global footprint through innovative and sustainable strategies. We look forward to building on this partnership for years to come,” said Steven Reed, mayor of Montgomery.

Jeffrey Kotila, site director with Premier Tech, said, “With key investment to increase the quality of our products, like powder coating, and the integration of a technical floor allowing for testing equipment at full speed and payloads as well as a dedicated training room for clients and team members, our new headquarters are setting the stage for growing our sales and delivering an even better overall client experience.”

Founded in 1923, Premier Tech has 372 team members in 33 states and five manufacturing facilities. The company has a wide range of products, services, brands and technologies to increase crop yields, bring gardens to life, automate handling and packaging operations of many manufacturing facilities, treat and recycle water, support communities in their digital transformation and offer bio-ingredients for the well-being of humans and animals.
