Spiess Urania to invest in capacity enhancement
Mitsui & Co’s German subsidiary, Spiess Urania Chemicals (Hamburg), is to invest in expanding its capability in copper-based agrochemical products. The company manufactures copper-based chemicals and distributes crop protection products in central and eastern Europe. A multi-million euro investment into additional production flexibility and capacity made in 2010 will now be followed by a new project, upgrading the company’s copper hydroxide production line. This will make it possible to offer proprietary hydroxide-based formulations as free-flowing, dust-free products.
