Arysta completes Tsunami acquisitions
Arysta LifeScience has completed the acquisition of assets of two agrochemical businesses of South African group AFGRI Operations. They include assets of AFGRI’s subsidiary, Tsunami Plant Protection, and the business and several assets of its subsidiary, Tsunami Crop Care (both Heidelberg). The deals were agreed earlier this year ( Agrow No 586, p 2), and the national authorities approved them on March 31st. Arysta aims to serve the African market better through the acquisitions. It expanded its South African ISO 9000-certified liquid formulation facility near Durban last year. South African pesticide company, Volcano, opened it in 2007 ( Agrow No 528, p 6). Arysta acquired Volcano in 2008 ( Agrow No 547, p 1).
