BEIJING, CHINA and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, December 18, 2017
Global crop protection group ADAMA, the combination of Adama Agricultural Solutions Ltd. and Hubei Sanonda Co., Ltd. (together, “ADAMA” or “the Combined Company”), today announced that its state-of-the-art global formulation center in Huai’An City, Jiangsu Province, is to commence operations.
Covering 119,100 square meters (178.68 mu), and located in Huai’An’s modern industrial park, ADAMA’s new formulation facility is fully automated, and includes advanced packaging lines as well as a logistics center. The facility also benefits from its proximity to ADAMA’s new R&D center in Nanjing.
The new Huai’An formulation center and the Sanonda facilities in Jingzhou City together form ADAMA’s China operational hub, which is now a key component in ADAMA’s global operational layout, alongside its advanced operational hub in Israel. With its location in Jiangsu Province, a leading global base of advanced chemical development and production, and adhering to the highest quality, safety and environmental standards, the Huai’An formulation center is expected to deliver significant operational efficiencies. It will benefit from nearby availability of raw materials and intermediates, as well as shorter supply lines, and will significantly bolster ADAMA’s ability to efficiently provide differentiated solutions to farmers in China and around the world.
Commenting on the development, An Liru, Head of ADAMA’s China Cluster, noted “This is an important milestone for ADAMA, as the new state-of-the-art facility in Huai’An will play a pivotal role in enhancing our global product offering. Together, our China and Israel hubs form a robust launch pad for ADAMA's advanced products, both for the Chinese and global markets.”
