May 26, 2016 - Premier Tech has acquired a manufacturing facility located in Mattaponi, Va. Formerly owned by the German company ASB Greenworld, this plant will be added to the North American platform of the Premier Tech business unit, Premier Tech Horticulture, thus expanding its manufacturing capacity in the United States.
Leveraging this new foothold on the east coast, Premier Tech Horticulture will widen its commercial offer while benefiting from an increased proximity with its clients on the American horticulture markets. By fall, the newly acquired facility will allow the company to offer its clients a wider product offer integrating Premier Tech biocontrols and biostimulants.
As a world leader in the horticulture industry, Premier Tech Horticulture offers under the PROMIX brand a complete line of growing media for horticulture professionals. Its high-performance products have earned a solid reputation since 1968, delivering reliable and consistent results the company’s clients can count on.
“With this investment, Premier Tech once again shows that it remains dedicated to creating a close and unique experience for its clients through added-value offers and unparalleled levels of innovation, support and service,” said Jean Bélanger, president and chief operating officer of Premier Tech.
Premier Tech has been growing its leadership position globally for more than 90 years, driven by the collective power of its 3,250 team members in 24 countries. Leveraging its human capital as well as a deeply rooted culture revolving around innovation and excellence, Premier Tech focuses its efforts in three core industries: Horticulture and Agriculture – greenhouse production, agriculture, and lawn and garden; Industrial Equipment – rigid and flexible packaging, material handling, and palletizing; and Environmental Technologies – wastewater treatment and rainwater harvesting. Committed to the long-term success of its clients, Premier Tech today records sales of nearly 675 million dollars, backed by a strong manufacturing and commercial expertise, a far-reaching entrepreneurial approach and a quarter-century-long track record of solid growth.
