With effect from May 1st, 2013, SQM Vitas, a joint venture of SQM Europe and the Roullier Group,
will take over the business unit of PLANTACOTE® including all customer relationships. SQM Vitas
will build a new coating plant based on AGLUKON's PLANTACOTE® process know-how in Western Europe.
Before this newmanufacturing facility starts operations, AGLUKON will continue to produce
PLANTACOTE® in the customary high quality and reliability at its plant in Düsseldorf
for SQM Vitas, which will take over the distribution. SQM Vitas is desirous of
continuing the current customer relationships in the single countries.
It is in AGLUKON's best interest to preserve continuity and ensure that customers
are supplied with a high-quality product also in the future. Therefore, AGLUKON
will consult SQM Vitas in the construction of the new manufacturing plant and
support the further technical development of PLANTACOTE® products with our
competent and well-trained personnel until the year 2019.
The PLANTOSAN business remains unaffected by this change.
AGLUKON will expand in the future the focus of its resources and activities on its
core business of WUXAL Foliar Fertilizers.
