Rotam North America and Sipcam Agro USA, Inc. have announced that their Joint Venture SipcamRotam LLC was separated at the end of 2017. The Joint Venture was formed in 2016 for the marketing and sales of crop protection products in the United States.
The two companies will retain individual rights to manufacture, market and sell their individually-owned products to distribution channel partners. Customers of both companies can expect no interruption in service or in product delivery. The JV has legally expired on December 31, 2017.
"We entered into the joint venture to increase product availability to our distribution partners," said Steve Slaveck, Country Manager of the U.S. and Canada. "Both companies have now expanded individual market access and we're looking forward to continuing to provide exceptional customer service and high-quality agricultural products to our customers."
Both companies will continue to develop, register and sell new products with the active ingredients growers need. Both companies agree the primary focus is their customers, and will continue to collaborate to bring new agronomic solutions to the market.
"The joint venture was a worthy enterprise for our customers and our companies," said Adam Burnhams, General Manager of SipcamRotam. "Our combined customer base has had the exposure to broader plant protection solutions and we have learned even better ways to serve them."
