RIVIÈRE-DU-LOUP, QUEBEC, CANADA — Prairie Engineering, a Premier Tech company, is now the exclusive distributor of Petkus seed and grain technologies in the United States and Canada, as part of a new partnership between the two companies.

Established in Germany since 1852, Petkus develops, designs, and manufactures in house seed and grain technological concepts. Consistent with Premier Tech’s strategic vision, this business relationship will allow it to better serve the North-American agricultural market, the company said.

 Customers will gain access to a variety of conditioning equipment, including sorting equipment, cleaners, gravity tables and chemical treating.

In addition to distributing Petkus equipment, Prairie Engineering will oversee service, preventive maintenance and parts for the Petkus North-American client base.

“At Premier Tech, we have developed a deep, day-to-day understanding of our clients’ real issues and of the markets we operate in to ensure that our commercial offers are relevant,” said Jean Bélanger, president and chief operating officer. “And this partnership comes directly from this philosophy — two companies that are forward thinking coming together to help their clients win with innovative engineering technologies.”
