Tradecorp Acquires Brazilian Company Microquimica
The acquisition of Microquimica, a company with an established presence of more than 40 years in the Brazilian market, will allow Tradecorp, the Sapec Agro Business specialty crop nutrition division, to consolidate its position in Latin America, in particular in Brazil.
Microquimica´s specialized portfolio, in particular its microbial inoculants and biological aminoacids (both developed and manufactured in Microquimica facilities), will enhance the already broad portfolio of Sapec Agro Business, providing complete solutions to farmers.
With two plants located in Campinas, Brazil, Microquimica will strengthen the production flexibility and capacity of Sapec Agro Business and provide manufacturing capabilities in the Americas.
Through its various companies, Sapec Agro Business can now offer a strong portfolio of off-patent crop protection products, adjuvants and specialty crop nutrition products, including a diverse portfolio of high-quality biostimulants and bio-control (through the recent acquisition of Idai Nature). This consolidated portfolio allows the Group to develop and offer integrated crop management programs aimed at more efficient use of agricultural inputs, optimizing crop yields while respecting environmental and health limits.
Eric van Innis, CEO of Sapec Agro Business, commented on the importance of this acquisition to the Group: “One more step in our strategy to become a global benchmark in the provision of crop strategy programs and services adapted for all crops, local specific needs and covering most of the plant input spectrum. Microquimica brings us specific inputs, distribution channels in one of the most important agriculture markets and a group of talented and dedicated managers and people, fully in line with our global strategy.”
