Premier Tech improves its production capacity

AND CONTINUES TO GROW IN THE FIELD OF AGRICULTURE

Premier Tech shows strong commitment to support the development of agriculture through a major investment in one of its production plants. To get closer to its markets and better serve its customer base with its product offer, Premier Tech has reconfigured its 16,800-sq.ft. plant located in Minnesota, United States.

That investment is essential to meet the growing demand for the active ingredients developed and marketed by the company, including its mycorrhizal and rhizobium inoculant. Historically, theseformulations were produced in Rivière-du-Loup (QC), Canada, and then shipped to Western Canada.

Started in 2016, the works led to the creation of a production line dedicated to the AGTIV® inoculants, which adds to the growing media bagging lines already present. All was entirely designed in-house by Premier Tech's engineering teams.

"With the addition of state-of-the-art equipment, we can better support the sales growth we have been experiencing for several years," says Jacques Blanchet, Operations Director at Premier Tech. "With the first phase of the project, over 800 tons of agricultural products were delivered during the 2017 season. Another phase is currently in progress and will result in the construction of a 10,500-sq.ft. warehouse," stated Mr. Blanchet.

This growth plan guarantees the quality and supply of the products offered. This is an important step that shows the reach of the skills as well as the level of involvement of our teams for the agriculture market.
