Bühler and Premier Tech have worked closely together in the interest of forming a 50/50 joint venture in China, PT-Bühler, which will officially start on July 1, 2020. The strategic cooperation between Swiss Bühler Group and Premier Tech from Canada, which started as a close collaboration in August 2019, evolved into a Joint Venture in China and ultimately grew to a global partnership for bulk packaging.
This new partnership will allow Bühler to access Premier Tech’s leading technologies in bagging and palletizing either through the newly created PT-Bühler joint venture in China, serving the world with cost-effective packaging, or directly through Premier Tech’s facilities for the high-end food feed and grain markets worldwide.
“The global partnership will serve customers worldwide by building on Premier Tech’s recognized know-how in the field of automated packaging technologies while making full use of Bühler’s strong international sales and service network,” André Noreau, CEO of Premier Tech’s Systems and Automation business said.
Premier Tech and Bühler are bringing their cooperation to new heights by offering adapted state-of-the-art packaging solutions around the globe. Bühler will continue to service its existing installed base and will also focus on sales and service through its global customer service focus and total plant-solution expertise.
