SipcamAdvan ends Certis USA distribution deal
Sipcam-Oxon’s US agrochemical business, SipcamAdvan (Durham, North Carolina), ended its US distribution deal with biopesticide company Certis USA (Columbia, Maryland) on May 1st. The move is aimed at building an “exclusive line of biorational products” under the Advan brand, says SipcamAdvan president and CEO Andy Lee. SipcamAdvan comprises Sipcam Agro USA, Advan and Sostram. Advan was originally a joint venture between Sipcam Agro USA and Certis USA, but it became a wholly owned subsidiary of Sipcam Agro USA last year ( Agrow No 552, p 3).
