This agreement confirms our commitment to bring Plant Nutrition and Biostimulation solutions to the market to serve a productive and competitive agriculture” states Nicolas Fillon, CEO of the DE SANGOSSE group.

FERTIPLUS France, with its production site based in the region of Barcelona in Spain “will rely on the resources of the DE SANGOSSE group to continue to develop new products. The international presence of DE SANGOSSE will boost the marketing of the FERTIPLUS product range on the world market” states Nicolas Fillon.

Jérôme Peltier, Director of FERTIPLUS France indicates that "signing this strategic agreement with the DE SANGOSSE group is excellent news for the development of projects commenced several years ago. It is indeed a decisive step, and one that makes us proud, for the future of our companies, as well as for our partners.”

He adds that “This agreement, bolstered by so many synergies with the DE SANGOSSE group, a reference European player in Biosolutions, will be of benefit to all our historical and future partners by boosting considerably our international presence, at their side, as well as through a new offer in terms of depth of range and services.”

Jérôme Peltier underlines lastly that “This acquisition by the DE SANGOSSE group also ensures that FERTIPLUS can rely on a major, highly-efficient R&D hub, that guarantees future market introductions of specialties benefiting from the latest knowledge in plant nutrition and which will result in an innovative, stand-out offer for our partners.” FERTIPLUS is growing constantly and the technical development and marketing of its product portfolio will be accelerated by its integration into the DE SANGOSSE group.”
