Premier Tech continues to grow, announcing its eighth acquisition — and first in Quebec — in the past 18 months, taking over Saint-Hubert–based engineering firm Automation Machine Design (AMD Inc.).

“Our Industrial Equipment Group has experienced continuous and sustained growth since its creation in 1990,” said Premier Tech President and Chief Operating Officer Jean Bélanger. “That’s why we’re constantly looking for new strategic skills and technological platforms that will help us increase production capacity and offer our clients products that are a perfect match for their needs and realities.”

AMD Inc. has specialized in designing and manufacturing automated and robotic industrial equipment for 25 years.

With the acquisition, Premier Tech’s Industrial Equipment Group will be able to leverage the AMD team’s expertise to support its accelerated growth and boost its engineering capabilities in automation and manufacturing, according to a company press release.

Some 50 people will bring their experience and know-how to the Premier Tech Team.
