Retrofits & Upgrades

For Premier Tech Chronos, retrofitting means innovating to achieve our clients’ business objectives. We listen to our customers’ pain points to understand their situation and find the solution that best suits each customer. We want to give them more reliability by reducing their downtime, thus allowing them to increase their productivity.

Over the years, our extensive IR&D programs have led to the continuous improvement of our equipment lines; benefit from the skills and expertise of a dedicated team of engineering, project management and sales application experts working in partnership with you to optimize your existing packaging lines. Our retrofits and upgrades come in the form of software upgrades, mechanical parts, electrical components or a combination of these. In other words, we can turn older equipment into state-of-the-art equipment.
