Belchim Crop Protection acquires Proagro GmbHqrcode

Favorites Print Apr. 10, 2017
Belchim Crop Protection, based in Londerzeel, Belgium, extends its agrochemical business in Germany by purchasing a 100 % shareholding position in Proagro GmbH, located in Abenberg, Germany. Belchim will further enhance Proagro’s strong and successful track record by providing high-quality and innovative solutions for plant protection with a focus on special crops, like ornamentals, strawberries and top fruits such as apples and cherries.

Belchim Crop Protection, a globally expanding corporation, bought all shares of Proagro GmbH.  Belchim already has offices in Burgdorf, Germany. But with this acquisition Belchim invests in a stronger market position while zooming in on high value crops. For more than 15 years Proagro has operated independently with headquarters in Abenberg. Besides Germany, Proagro developed business in other European markets like Italy, Austria and Poland. As result of the buyout, there will be a strong synergy between the existing and the pipeline products from Belchim and the newly acquired portfolio from Proagro in fruits, vegetable crops and ornamentals.

Dirk Putteman, CEO of Belchim Crop Protection is pleased with this new opportunity: “I am convinced of the strong synergy with our own innovative solutions in special crops. These days they require a specific approach based on IPM-Systems (Integrated Pest Management) including conventional and bioactive products. Belchim Crop Protection will become a German leader in high value crops.” Stefan Conradt, who will lead Proagro, added: “Belchim is confident of the business concept and the competence of the Proagro management and their staff.” Dieter Frieß, former co-owner of Proagro, is delighted that Belchim will further develop the successful market launch of Proagro by providing high-quality and innovative solutions for plant protection in special crops.
