Combining over 200 years of industry knowledge, Premier Tech and Bühler’s packaging solutions bring new opportunities to the markets in China, Southeast Asia, Africa, and South America, ensuring exact, safer, and more reliable packaging equipment. “Our customers will now have access to the best technologies from Premier Tech and Bühler at competitive prices and a service network that can quickly take care of their needs,” says Alexis Michaud, Technical and Product Director, Premier Tech – Bühler.
Having attracted talents from both companies, the joint venture benefits from Premier Tech’s superior packaging expertise and technological leadership in this field, while Bühler contributes its knowledge of high-quality manufacturing and supply chain management in China as well as its digital solutions. In terms of digitalization, the teams are working on integrating packaging solutions into Bühler plants as this is one of the final steps to be able to show customers transparency and traceability of the products from the intake to the pallet. The partners agreed that BühlerInsights is a key enabler to drive connectivity. “We are committed to working together to make for the best customer experiences while fully addressing their needs and complementing each other in all cases,” says André Noreau.
The next milestone from the partnership is already in the making. Currently, the partners are working on their first open-mouth bagger, which will pack powder as well as flour at high speed and high accuracy. It is set to be completed this year, with production starting in 2022.
