Green company becomes a multidisciplinary success story.

Back in 1923, who would have thought that such a small sphagnum peat moss business would become the international company Premier Tech?

From two brothers to an expanded 2,500 team members, from Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec to a worldwide presence, from horticulture/agriculture to designing and manufacturing of industrial equipment, and wastewater treatment systems, Premier Tech has expanded and continues to do so in a remarkable way! Let’s celebrate 90 years of passion… and growth!

Premier Tech’s story revolves around vision and stability. In 2013, Premier Tech stays the course, building for the last 90 years on the energy and passion of its multidisciplinary team and relying on both strategic acquisitions and sustained investments in Innovation, Research and Development.

Premier Tech, whose international head office is still today located in Rivière-du-Loup, succeeded in establishing its presence in 20 countries in the Americas, Europe and Asia.


With its diverse business units and passionate team members, Premier Tech has built in-depth know-how in its various key industries enabling it to expand around its three Groups: Horticulture and Agriculture, Industrial Equipment, and Environmental Technologies.

Through the customer experience it has deployed, which includes the sale and servicing of innovative products, Premier Tech has been able to generate close to CDN $500 million in sales annually.

The future of Premier Tech continues to look bright regardless of the global economic trends, thanks to the positioning of the three business groups, and the sustained investments made in innovation, in manufacturing excellence and in the training and development of its team members.
