Premier Tech unveiled today its new state-of-the-art headquarters in the United States for its Systems and Automation business group in Montgomery, Alabama.
The completion of this 33 million-dollar investment marks Premier Tech’s commitment towards its customers and the U.S. market while strengthening its presence in this market. This comes just a few weeks after Premier Tech and its Systems and Automation business group announced a 13-million-dollar investment for a new technology and manufacturing centre in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The new 167 000-square-feet facility will become Premier Tech’s new solution hub for its American-based clients allowing for increased reaction time and a more intimate and closer relationship. This will result in an enhanced customer experience and improved project execution.

“The opening of this world-class facility is the culmination of many months of hard work for our teams in Riviere-du-Loup as well as here, in Montgomery, with the contribution of our local partners like Chambless King Architects. Our new U.S. headquarters reinforce our commitment to modernize our sites around the world and enhance our customer experience across the United States,” says Simon Roy, president and chief operating officer of Premier Tech Systems and Automation.
“Premier Tech’s commitment to Montgomery as a great place to grow their business is outstanding news for the River Region and all of Alabama. Montgomery is one of Alabama’s brightest stars in economic development, setting records and leading the state in job creation last year. With growth like this in Montgomery, it is no surprise Alabama ranks among the top ten states for doing business,” declares Kay Ivey, governor of Alabama.
