DE SANGOSSE (Agen, France) acquires a majority stake in the Spanish company SERVALESA (Valencia)

 

SERVALESA is a key player in the fields of Plant Nutrition, Biostimulants and Biocontrol.
For over thirty years SERVALESA has developed and successfully commercialized a range of specialty products based upon innovative technologies in Spain and in several other countries. These products are mainly aimed at the arboriculture, viticulture and vegetable markets and provide solutions recognized for their efficiency.
 
Thanks to this transaction DE SANGOSSE, already a reference player in the fields of Crop Protection and Plant Nutrition, is accelerating the deployment of its strategic plan. Biocontrol products and Biostimulants offer a strong growth potential as they provide farmers with effective technical solutions while complying with the environmental demands of the civil society.
 
“The strong synergies between SERVALESA and DE SANGOSSE, particularly evident in the R&D, industrial tools, marketing and commercial areas, will allow a significant increase in our group’s innovation capacity and strengthen our presence in the key agricultural areas of the world. The agreement attests to our commitment to bring Nutrition and Plant Protection solutions to the market in the service of an Eco Intensive Agriculture” states Nicolas Fillon, CEO of the DE SANGOSSE Group.
 
SERVALESA will avail itself of DE SANGOSSE Group’s additional resources, thus pursuing and improving the development of new products.
 
DE SANGOSSE’s international presence will bolster the placing of SERVALESA’s portfolio products on the world market.
 
On behalf of SERVALESA, Jose Helenio Juanes Peris, CEO, has declared that “The signing of this strategic agreement with the DE SANGOSSE Group represents excellent news for the development of several projects, in the making for several years already. SERVALESA has enjoyed a rapid and stable growth all along. Now, technical development, registrations and commercialization of its portfolio products will be accelerated thanks to the integration into the DE SANGOSSE Group”.
