PelGar International announcing acquisition

PelGar International is delighted to announce the acquisition of pesticide manufacturing company Agropharm Ltd.  Based in Penn, Buckinghamshire, Agropharm also has manufacturing and packing facilities in Telford, Shropshire. The launch of this strategic partnership took place on Thursday 7 May 2015."Agropharm offers a wide range of quality products and marketing solutions for the retail, professional pest control, public health and crop protection markets," explains Gareth Capel-Williams, managing director, PelGar International.  "This acquisition provides an excellent synergy with the PelGar product range and customer base. In particular, Agropharm's natural pyrethrum range will help to boost our market share in the international pest control and agricultural sectors."

"Agropharm offers a wide range of quality products and marketing solutions for the retail, professional pest control, public health and crop protection markets," explains Gareth Capel-Williams, managing director, PelGar International.  "This acquisition provides an excellent synergy with the PelGar product range and customer base. In particular, Agropharm's natural pyrethrum range will help to boost our market share in the international pest control and agricultural sectors."

Both companies have extensive international business with very limited overlap of territory and distribution. The Agropharm products will expand PelGar's portfolio in the home and garden and crop protection markets, as well as allowing PelGar to introduce their range of highly effective rodenticides and insecticides to Agropharm's existing customers.

Both companies will, for the time being, continue to operate independently without disruption to the existing business. With minimal cross-over of products in the pest control and agricultural sectors initial consolidation will be negligible and PelGar will be looking to expand its base both in the UK and internationally in the coming months and years.
