Acceres, European leading Agricultural Contract Research Group, announces today the acquisition of BIOTEK Agriculture, one of the leading field trial companies (GEP & GLP Field Testing) founded in France 30 years ago.
Less than three years after its creation by the French investment firm Ekkio Capital, Acceres continues its development by strengthening its position in the field testing activity.
Acceres is set up on 3-pillar including Regulatory Services, Field Trials and Laboratories Studies. The Group was founded by the cooperation between GAB Consulting, leading European regulatory consulting company offering comprehensive registration services for the biopesticide, biocide and agrochemical industry, and Promovert, historical South Europe Field Testing Company.
After the acquisition of the field testing activity of Phyteurop last year, this new strategic operation reinforces Acceres field testing capacities and capabilities and also enlarge its footprint across Europe and overseas.
“The synergies between the two companies, in combination with GAB Consulting scientific expertise will enhance our services and quality for the benefit of our customers” explains Yvonnick Jambon, CEO of Acceres.
Philippe Dalla Nora, who joined Acceres at the beginning of this year, is the new COO Field Research. He previously worked 8 years with SGS, after 23 years with Syngenta and has a strong background in CRO market.
As the market is rapidly evolving towards more consolidation, Acceres aims to bring a complete range of services to address new client demands. Beyond organic growth, ACCERES is planning new acquisitions to be able to offer its international clients the best coordination of high-quality services, putting together the best experts in their field.
