Premier Tech Systems and Automation's impressive track record of acquisitions, including industry giants vonGAL and Chronos Richardson, has cemented our position as one of the largest manufacturers of industrial packaging equipment on a global scale.

Premier Tech Systems and Automation worldwide locations

Canada & USA

We first burst onto the scene in Canada in 1989 with a groundbreaking achievement: creating our first baling system for peat moss.

In the years that followed, we made a series of strategic acquisitions and developed new products thanks to our IR&D that allowed us to diversify our offerings and reach a wider customer base.

One acquisition in particular, that of international packaging industry leader Chronos Richardson in 2002, opened up a world of opportunities, as its technologies continue to serve customers across Canada, the US, and beyond.

Premier Tech Ankeny

Latin America

Our expansion into Latin America was greatly facilitated by our 2015 acquisition of Almeida Martins, a respected manufacturer of robotic palletizers, case packers, and material handling solutions.

From our offices in Brazil and Mexico, we serve a wide range of industries in the nutrition, agriculture, industrial, and organic markets.


Situated in the vibrant tech hub of Eindhoven known as the Brainport region, Premier Tech has established itself as a leading manufacturer of industrial flexible packaging equipment in Europe.

With a strong foundation in the region thanks to our 2009 acquisition of BTH BV, a leading player in the Netherlands' packaging industry, as well as the acquisition of Chronos Richardson and Slootweg we have expanded our offerings to include a full range of packaging equipment, including weighing, bagging, palletizing, and load securing systems.

Our main focus at our Eersel facility is the production of high-quality open-mouth bagging systems, delivering reliable solutions to our European clients


Our presence in South East Asia, India, and China puts us in an ideal position to tap into some of the most dynamic and rapidly growing markets in the world.

Our locations in India and Bangkok, established through the Chronos Richardson acquisition, primarily produce bagging scales as well as open-mouth equipment and robotic palletizers.

In China, we are proud to offer high-end machinery imported from Europe to customers looking for top-quality equipment. 


Our strong presence in Oceania can be traced back to our 2018 acquisition of Kockums Bulk Systems, which has since grown to a team of over 30 members.

Our core manufacturing capability in the region is focused on the production of top-quality bulk handling systems, including bulk materials conveying systems and bulk bag unloaders, while our range of packaging equipment is sourced from Europe and Southeast Asia.

With this diverse offering, we are able to provide reliable solutions to our customers in the region.
