Agro market segment expands reach in Asia
In the past three months, the Agro team has been hard at work to grow their market share in Asia. As part of their efforts, they participated in a series of technical seminars in Taiwan, Shijiazhuang and Shandong to expose Surface Chemistry’s technology to potential market opportunities.
One seminar focused on innovative agro solutions to drive future growth. Twenty customers from all over the country attended it.
“As a result of our participation, we received positive feedback, sample requests and projects initiatives. An R&D Manager at one of the top pesticide manufacturers in Taiwan was pleased with AkzoNobel’s technical capabilities and plans to collaborate with AkzoNobel on new formulations for future growth," explained Tom Zhang, Technical Sales Manager for Agro in China.
