Staphyt acquires Phytex
French contract research company Staphyt (Inchy-en-Artois) has acquired French GEP trial company Phytex (Perpignan). The takeover will help Staphyt provide increased services to vegetables, ornamentals and orchards in the Mediterranean region. It is part of the company’s plan to develop its services on specialised crops and orchards. Phytex’s facility in the south of France and Staphyt’s own stations in southern France, Italy and Spain will allow an increase of trials on a wide range of Mediterranean crops.
