Thailand-Based Premier Tech Systems Plans Montgomery, Alabama, Headquarters-Operations Center

Thailand-based Premier Tech Systems and Automation will establish its U.S. Headquarters and Systems and Automation business group in Montgomery, Alabama. The $33 million project is expected to create 180 jobs.

The 165,000-square-foot facility will include an innovation, research and development area as well as a training center. It will also serve as a customer solutions hub for the American market, as well as a spare parts distribution center, which will accelerate the delivery of spare parts for customers in the U.S. Operations will start gradually in March 2023.

"The design of our new facility will allow an increase in production capacity that will sustain our future growth. It will also allow us to better serve the American market," according to André Noreau, president and CEO of Premier Tech Systems and Automation. "Team members will have a world-class manufacturing environment and this new construction will become the cornerstone of equipment manufacturing and customer solutions in the United States."

Premier Tech builds equipment to help automate bagging and packaging operations for specific industrial products such as chemicals, insulation, and minerals. Lines can be equipped with weighing and feeding systems, bag fillers, balers, valve packers, palletizer, case packers, stretch wrappers, and stretch hooders.

"We are so honored that Premier Tech has expanded since selecting Montgomery as one of their homes in 28 countries all over the world," said Montgomery Chamber Chair Cedric Campbell.
