11.05.2020 Bühler/Premier Tech JV evolves into a global partnership

Bühler Group, Uzwil, Switzerland, and Premier Tech of Canada have further developed their strategic cooperation. What started with a close collaboration in August 2019, has resulted in a joint venture in China (see EBS News for week of 26 August 2019) and has now grown into a global partnership for bulk packaging.

This new international cooperation will allow Bühler to access Premier Tech’s leading technologies in bagging and palletising – either through the newly created PT-Bühler joint venture in China – or directly through Premier Tech’s facilities serving the global high-end food, feed and grain markets. “The global partnership will serve customers worldwide by building on Premier Tech’s recognised know-how in the field of automated packaging technologies while making full use of Bühler’s strong international sales and service network,” commented André Noreau, CEO of Premier Tech’s Systems and Automation business. Premier Tech and Bühler are bringing their cooperation to a new level by offering adapted state-of-the-art packaging solutions around the globe. The European head office and manufacturing plant of Premier Tech Systems and Automation is in Eersel, the Netherlands.

After entering their strategic cooperation last year, Bühler and Premier Tech have worked closely together in the interest of forming a 50/50 joint venture in China that will officially start on 1st July 2020. The aim of the joint venture is to develop and market new cost-effective packaging solutions based on Premier Tech’s bagging expertise. Operating in Wuxi, China, PT-Bühler will focus on serving the food and feed markets in China, and other markets moving towards cost-effective automation.

“Customers will benefit from significantly more efficient, and even more accurate and food safe packaging solutions thanks to automation technologies developed by PT-Bühler,” said Johannes Wick, CEO of Bühler’s Grains & Food business.;
