De Sangosse acquires Lances Link Turkey
French crop protection company De Sangosse (Agen) has acquired Turkish crop protection company Lances Link Turkey (Istanbul). The Turkish company has been operating in the country for 20 years and sells crop protection, plant nutrients and adjuvants. Its turnover in 2013 amounted to €4 million ($5.2 million). “The acquisition will enable us to enhance the international position of our group in one of the world’s regions where we did not have a presence, and where agriculture has very high development potential,” says De Sangosse chief executive officer Nicolas Fillon.
