Lawrenceville, Ga. (March 23, 2010)—Chemtura AgroSolutions™, a leading global provider of crop protection solutions, announces its new identity, structure and initiatives designed to enhance the company’s ability to provide growers with innovative, value-driven crop protection products and services.
Formerly known as Chemtura Crop Protection, the company was renamed Chemtura AgroSolutions to reflect its long-term strategy, initiatives and investments that will directly support new product formulations, applications, delivery and service. The strategy and initiatives are designed to provide more solutions for business partners and customers, supporting the “AgroSolutions” name.
With new headquarters in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and the opening of a state-of-the-art Technology Development Center within the next 12 months, Chemtura AgroSolutions is better positioned than ever to serve its customers’ unique needs in a wide range of high-value crop markets.
“The Chemtura crop protection business has been successful for many years and has historically experienced continual growth and record success,” said Greg McDaniel, president, Chemtura AgroSolutions.
“Our latest move brings us physically closer to many of our partners, and our business plan allows us to build on past successes in ways that will better serve our distributors, dealers, cooperatives, seed companies and end users,” added McDaniel.
Chemtura AgroSolutions is a global company with international operations serving four distinct regions: North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Europe, Middle East and Africa. The company combines expertise and proven success in global regulatory standards with the research capabilities and resources to establish new crop labels and pest control options.
“This is truly an exciting time for our company, our employees, our channel partners and our customers,” said McDaniel. “The new Chemtura AgroSolutions will build on its past success with a relentless commitment to meet the ever-changing needs of the agricultural industry. This includes long-term portfolio investment for new product development, improved product availability and new options to provide growers increased profit potential,” said McDaniel.
Chemtura AgroSolutions has deep roots in the agricultural chemical business that reflect more than 100 years of growth and innovation. The company’s sales and technical representatives have a long history of strong field relationships with researchers, university experts, growers and distributors.
Moving forward, Chemtura AgroSolutions will continue to work in partnership with its strategic partners to establish a presence in research trials and promote product development. As a result, the company will be able to deliver more of what its customers need to grow healthy and productive crops.
Chemtura AgroSolutions is also announcing the formation of a team dedicated exclusively to uncovering industrial sales growth opportunities called the Actives Division. McDaniel said this will allow the company to take its active ingredients into markets around the world that are not currently being served.
“Expanding our reach into these new markets will ensure Chemtura AgroSolutions maximizes operational efficiency and increases economies of scale for future investments,” said McDaniel. “Collectively, all of our new initiatives are designed with one purpose in mind—to provide our distributors, dealers, cooperatives and end users with outstanding value and service.”
Chemtura AgroSolutions offers a comprehensive line of miticides, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, plant growth regulators and seed treatment products that improve the quality and increase yields of specialty crops across the globe.
