HELM AG and Unium Bioscience Ltd will expand their recently announced partnership, following HELM becoming a shareholder in the company, effective now.
According to the two companies, this will further combine skills, resources and pipeline development to accelerate bringing sustainable solutions to market. Developing plant physiology, biological and nutrient solutions for farmers and growers is a key strategic direction.
Both companies aim to address future global food and feed supply with modern sustainable products. The shareholding of HELM AG will reportedly unlock further growth potential in terms of market reach.
Unium products will be marketed through the established routes to market of both companies, and both will work closely to bring new products to market.
Michael Kuhlmann, executive vice president of crop protection at HELM outlines the importance of developing long-term partnerships and accessing new technologies: “We have always valued working with innovative companies. In the past, we mostly focused on classic plant protection. Now is the time to invest equally in alternative solutions.”
John Haywood of Unium is convinced: “HELM is a perfect match to grow our footprint of products into new markets. Unium tools have a proven performance to help farmers in their efficiency and growing crops towards their full genetical yield potential. Combining tools with HELM will create synergies, addressing future global supply needs and will bring value to the market, distributors and farmers.”
