Atticus acquires Tacoma Ag
Jun. 28, 2018
This strategic acquisition complements and expands Atticus’ product offerings, particularly in the herbicide category, and further positions the company as a well-balanced supplier that is equipped to serve a full spectrum of customers. The acquisition also reinforces Atticus’ commitment to exceed customer expectations by strengthening the company’s scale and scope in an industry that is increasingly challenged by sourcing, supply chain and regulatory dynamics.
According to Randy Canady, Atticus Founder and CEO, “Tacoma Ag has a proven track record of providing quality products with a customer friendly approach; an ethos that perfectly aligns with Atticus’ mission of delivering operational excellence. On a personal level, I’ve known Tacoma Ag’s two founders, Kevin Howard and Bryan Wilson, for years and have the utmost respect for them as friends and as industry leaders. Together, we look forward to continuing to bring relevant, simple, reliable solutions to our customers.”
Canady says Howard will assume an active role in the go-forward company while Wilson will continue to participate in a part-time advisory capacity. Atticus plans to fully integrate all Tacoma Ag registrations and be prepared to offer a consolidated Atticus-branded portfolio beginning in the fall of this year.
Based in Cary, N.C., Atticus LLC manufactures a growing portfolio of relevant branded-generic fungicides, herbicides and insecticides for the US row crop, specialty agriculture and professional market. The company’s focus is to provide the right products, at the best value, with efficacy and availability that customers can trust. American-owned, privately held and personally financed, Atticus is vested in being the off-patent company with the experience and insight to support customers better.
