Premier Tech Chronos was born in 1989 to satisfy a need for automation at Tourbières Premier (now Premier Tech Horticulture, PTC’s sister company). PTC started out as the company’s engineering department, manufacturing equipment to support internal technological needs. PTC soon decided to sell its equipment outside the company and became an international leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of state-of-the-art industrial equipment. Mostly involved in the organic industry at the beginning of the 1990s, PTC quickly expanded into non-organic markets through its extensive IR&D programs and the acquisition of Chronos Richardson Systems. By adding this 125-year-old German company to its team, PTC paved the way for major growth in the food, chemical and mineral industries while complementing its product lines with new packaging technologies. With its wide range of products and innovative solutions tailored to its customers’ specific needs, PTC is now an international leader in the field of industrial flexible and rigid packaging equipment.
The 14 acquisitions Premier Tech has made for Premier Tech Chronos (PTC) in less than 20 years fall within one of the company’s strategic initiatives. Acquisitions have been Premier Tech’s dominant growth factor over the past 25 years.
