Essere Group arrives in Brazilian agrochemical sector
Apr. 6, 2021
According to Antônio Carlos de Gissi Junior, Executive and Commercial Director of the Essere Group, since the creation, 31 years ago, of Kimberlit Agrociências, the new holding of the national agro group that combines Bionat Agro, Floema, Kimberlit Agrociências and Loyder, their ongoing transparency and professionalism have been advancing the business.
“The whole process will be based on the values reflected in all our businesses, with corporate governance increasingly present in our management and conduct, as well as through our talents who are focused on generating value for our customers,” Junior said.
The expectations of the new holding company include effective management, sustainability, financial awareness to ensure good decision-making, and preparing and investing in professionals to leverage new challenges, as the national agribusiness is still growing year by year, requiring flexibility in handling changes to take advantage of opportunities, adopting appropriate practices and knowing how to deal with related changes.
Luciano de Gissi, Operations Director of Essere Group, explained some his opinions on the growth of the holding's business units. “Bionat Agro should triple its turnover in 2021, with projected sales of 40 million reais. It will also have a new headquarters in the second half of the year covering an area of 14,500 m². Floema will expand its fleet and will begin transporting refrigerated cargo, making it possible to deliver products at the highest standards of quality. Loyder is assembling a new mixer that will have a 6,000 m² manufacturing structure and a production capacity of 60 tons per hour using Haya technology, which was designed to serve the São Paulo market. According to the company’s strategic plan, by 2030, it will produce this model in 10 other industrial units in Brazil. Kimberlit Agrocências aims to invest in a new water treatment plant and improvements to the production process. “We want to make Bionat Agro the largest biological company in Brazil, as well as endorse Loyder's participation in the national market for intelligent soil fertilizers and plant health, and duplicate Kimberlit Agrocências' commercial teams to consolidate its participation in the national market, placing it among the three largest companies specializing in nutrition and biostimulants in the country” Luciano said.
The Essere Group has four business units:
Created from the future vision of world agribusiness and the needs of farmers in all Brazilian regions for sustainable products that improve results in the field. Bionat works in partnership with the largest and most renowned microbiological research institutions in the country, such as EMBRAPA, ESALQ/USP and Instituto Biológico.
Established in 2019, Floema Logística plays a similar role to nature, as it connects the ends of the production chain, fulfils the strategic function of delivering the right solutions at the right time, and maintains best quality.
The company is a leader in the production of fertilizers using cutting-edge technology and innovation. Specializing in the development, production and commercialization of plant nutrition and physiology solutions, it focuses on increasing the productivity of crops through nutritional balance and physiological stimulus. Supported by the ISO 9001 quality management system, Kimberlit constantly invests in the R&D of new products.
The company focuses on the development of highly efficient intelligent soil fertilizers and innovative technologies that aim to achieve greater plant resistance to environmental and man-made stresses (abiotics and biotics), through the activation of defense system, directly affecting plant health.
Among the novelties of the holding company is the launch of its Shared Services Center, whose mission is to ensure excellence in supporting the operations of the group's companies with efficiency, control and responsibility, to provide quality services that will meet the needs of the group and the expectations of its business units.
