We are 100 years young. That’s right, young. Because everything we have yet to accomplish can only be matched by the strength and extent of the capabilities we have built as one team over the past century.
Now more than ever, the parallel between our century-long history and the power of our potential could not be stronger and more inspiring.
Here, now, together
So, what now? At 100 years young, we see ourselves carrying on making a difference in a big way. As we journey together into our second century — merging our rich history with our passion, our commitment, our agility and our energy — our focus will unwaveringly remain on delivering value to our clients around the world. This is where we stand and what we commit to.
Looking back to better leap forward
We started small, but bold. In 1933, as we were celebrating our 10th year in business, we opened our first manufacturing facility in Canada. At sixty, in 1983, our thirst for innovation and delivering value led us to open the first research centre in North America focusing on peat moss and its wide range of potential.
By the end of the 1990s, our ingenuity was conveyed into the diversification of our industries, namely automation and wastewater treatment. And by the time we turned eighty, we started expanding overseas and turbocharged our growth.

As we look back at this first century, we are thankful for all those that came before us and cognizant that they were such an integral and fundamental part of our past, but even more importantly of our future successes.
They showed us the importance of doing things for the right reasons and remaining authentic in our intent, while never being afraid of disrupting and reinventing ourselves by being bold, ingenious and staying genuine.
An inspiring future
The road ahead is inspiring and we want that future to be shaped by the strength of one team, coloured by long-lived traditions and fuelled by a culture that travels beyond borders.
We know this is core to the next 100 years, yet we purposely leave plenty of room for the unexpected, stumps on the road and strategic detours, as well as for exploring new ideas; knowing all too well that it is what made this first centennial the foundation from which we can launch the second one.

This is 100 years of celebrating life, connecting people, mastering technologies, fostering innovation and everything that makes us who we are — and we are beyond ready to do it all again.
Here’s to this milestone, here’s to our team — past, present and future. But most of all, here’s to what comes next.
Now more than ever, we are Premier Tech and this is our time as we move beyond 100.
Celebrating 100 years, and beyond
Together, we move forward — then, now and always. Cherishing our traditions, celebrating team wins, and taking pride in our century-young legacy. Here’s to the next 100 years of us.
