Having worked for Centor Oceania since its inception and within the seed treatment industry for more than 20 years, Simon brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the General Manager role.
Simon’s prime objective in this new role is to grow the reach of the business into new markets and expand the product range available to customers to encompass an ever more holistic seed technology enhancement offering.
Moreover, Simon will support the sales management teams developing strategies to improve the uptake of Centor Oceania’s increasing range of seed coating polymers, particularly the next generation of polymer products which have world class benefits and features.

Not only this, we will also be providing technologies into the market from in-house development and from other members in the Centor group, through which we are able to market our products globally.”
