RIVIÈRE-DU-LOUP, QC, June 28, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Premier Tech is proud to announce it is financially supporting Mr. Gilles Lamiré, who will be piloting the trimaran Défi Saint-Malo Agglo during the 8th edition of the famous Transat Québec-St-Malo race, which will get underway next July 22 in Québec City.
Beyond the competition itself, the crossing is a superb parallel with the Québec-France links that exist within Premier Tech's Environmental Technologies Group, that is, those between Premier Tech Aqua and its sister company Premier Tech Aqua Purflo, based in Châteauneuf-d'Ille-et-Vilaine, near Saint-Malo. This strategic association provides the wastewater treatment market with efficient products we anticipate the whole industry will look to in terms of protecting the environment at a reasonable cost for owners, businesses, communities and industries. The success they bring along is the result of a great synergy and unique know-how.
"This participation is highly symbolic for Premier Tech Aqua and Premier Tech Aqua Purflo, as well as for our team members and partners. The Transat Québec-St-Malo race is an exceptional example of determination which supports the principles of hard work and cooperation we have established for ourselves," explained Henri Ouellet, President of Premier Tech's Environmental Technologies Group.
Other major companies from Québec are involved in the adventure, among which are Creaform, Desjardins and Leonard. The public will have the opportunity to admire the celebrated racing trimaran between July 9 and July 22 at the port of Québec City.
For close to 90 years, Premier Tech has been building its know-how and reputation on the expertise and synergy of its three groups - Horticulture and Agriculture, Industrial Equipment and Environmental Technologies. They have one mission: to become technological and commercial leaders in their respective industries. Driven by a multidisciplinary team of over 2 300 people located in the Americas, Europe and Asia, Premier Tech focuses on the development of its team members, on Innovation, and on the introduction of value-added products and services to support its long-term growth.
