According to the director of DVA Brazil, Fernando Fernandes, the investment amounts to approximately BRL12 million. It covers an area of more than 2,000 square meters, and will be used to produce approximately 10 million liters of high-performance adjuvants per year.

The multinational emphasized that, in a short period of operation in Brazil, this inauguration is another crucial step in strengthening and expanding, with the expectation of doubling the company's global size by 2028.

Over the past seven years, DVA Agro has been heavily investing in developing technologies in adjuvants and physiological and biological biostimulants, with approximately 10 innovations being patented each year.

According to Natália Gonçalves, Global Director of Research and Development and the Adjuvant Line (ADYUVIA) and specialty chemicals, the new facility would produce a significant portion of the chemical expertise for the agricultural market.

"The products manufactured here will be exported to the other 53 countries where we operate. This reaffirms the company's commitment to expanding operations," she said.

Currently, the company markets 20 different product formulations, many patented, featuring high technology and performance for agribusiness.

The Brazilian unit was specifically built to produce the ADYUVIA line, consisting of foliar and soil adjuvants, and the specialty chemicals line (SPCHEM) to develop other formulations.

"The factory was designed with the structure to serve as a unit to meet the Latin American demand for the INCENTIA line of plant nutrition and biostimulants," Natália detailed.

Brazil was chosen to host the new factory due to the strategic positioning of the main markets that the group operates in, being closer to rural producers and for intellectual property control.


In addition to this Brazilian unit, which will have more than 30 employees, DVA Agro also has a factory in Argentina, focused on the production of chemical, agricultural pesticides, and two other units in Spain, focused on the development of physiological biostimulants and biological pesticides, as well as two other research centers also in Spain focused on plant nutrition and biologicals.

Participating in the ceremony, in addition to representatives from the public authorities of Indaiatuba, were João Aleixo, CEO of DVA Agro, Matthias Damm, owner and CEO of DVA Group, and other professionals from the company.
