Koppert recently acquired Oecos, a leading company in the development and production of trapping systems for agriculture and horticulture. The acquisition of this British family concern includes all fixed assets, customer base, IP, and the company's name, Oecos.
Oecos has been working at full production capacity for some time, and with limited space at its production facilities, Oecos was no longer able to meet the growing demand by customers for their products. Oecos products include Rollertraps, wet & dry sticky traps and pheromone related products. Not only have Oecos and Koppert been respected partners for many years, Koppert also became one of Oecos's major customers over time. As Oecos's product portfolio is of great importance to Koppert, Koppert decided to approach Oecos to discuss future steps. This eventually led to the acquisition of Oecos.
Oecos and Koppert will work side-by-side in the coming weeks to ensure that customers will not be affected by this transition. Oecos's production will eventually be moved to Koppert headquarters in the Netherlands. Koppert will keep all current customers informed as this transition progresses.
