Nufarm Austria expands production facility
Nufarm Austria has invested €14 million ($19.5 million) towards the expansion of its production facility at Linz. The investment has been made to increase production capacity, enhance environment protection measures, and build a new warehouse. The facility has become Nufarm’s third largest globally and acts as a platform to cater to the growing markets of eastern Europe. "That's where the demand for plant protection products is growing, in contrast to western Europe,” says Nufarm’s general manager for north-eastern Europe, Peter van Sloun. The company plans to invest €4 million ($5.6 million) each year towards environment protection measures and process optimisation.
