Valagro Starts Construction of U.S. Plant in South Carolina
Valagro, a leader in the development, production, and marketing of biostimulant and advanced nutrient solutions for cash and row crops, is commencing the construction of its Orangeburg, South Carolina plant in the U.S., with a groundbreaking ceremony, which was attended by members of the local community, esteemed guests, state representatives, as well as members of federal government, according to a company press release.
Consistent with Valagro’s commitment to innovation, the plant will introduce cutting-edge technologies for the production of plant biostimulants and chelated micronutrients in the U.S. The opening of the production site will also involve the creation of nearly 50 new advanced manufacturing jobs.
Thanks to the Orangeburg production plant, Valagro will be able to better meet current and future American demand for innovative sustainable agriculture solutions, better serve North American customers, and advance the use of biological products in agriculture.
“The new American plant is a fundamental part of Valagro’s global production strategy and is further evidence of the company’s continued and solid global growth,” said Giuseppe Natale, CEO of Valagro. “But beyond this, I would like to emphasize the site’s role in advancing the broader objective of creating conditions that enable the agriculture of the future in a market that is as essential to us as it is to the global farming industry in general.”
