Valent to sell Pace pre-harvest range in US

Sumitomo Chemical subsidiary Valent USA Corporation (Walnut Creek, California) is to take over the US marketing and sales of Pace International’s (Seattle, Washington) pre-harvest product range from March 1st. The move follows the acquisition of Pace by Valent USA Corporation’s sister company, Valent BioSciences (Libertyville, Illinois), in December 2012 ( Agrow No 655, p 2). Pace will continue to support its pre-harvest products outside the US and its post-harvest portfolio worldwide. Pace’s pre-harvest products are aimed at protecting tree fruit crops from environmental stress. In view of Valent USA Corporation’s strong position in pome and stone fruit, the move provides “excellent growth opportunities for these brands”, says executive vice-president and chief operating officer Andy Lee.
