DuPont appoints Terrachem as a distributor of it’s agri-product range

DuPont UK has appointed Terrachem Ltd as a distributor of its agricultural product range in Ireland and Northern Ireland

Terrachem will begin distribution of DuPont products from January 1, 2017.

Robert Bird, Country Manager for Ireland and the UK for DuPont Agricultural Products, believes the relationship will benefit both businesses.

“Terrachem will meet customer needs and support an expanding DuPont product range.”

Despite the agent’s route working well for several years this new relationship will develop a more formal and broader platform to market a wider range of products.

Valuing customer relationships, DuPont is looking to build long term business relationships in the future with the help of this deal.

The company’s agricultural product range includes animal nutrition, disease prevention, crop protection and seeds.

DuPont hopes to improves it’s development and regulatory support while also maintaining a balanced pipeline of products in the coming years, Bird said.

Meanwhile, the change-over from the agency arrangement, which DuPont has used for the last 10 years, to Terrachem will be seamless, according to Director of Terrachem Gary Beirne.

Customers will deal with the same personnel, receive the same technical support and it will continue to operate the same logistics system, he said.

Terrachem has a team of trained advisers and specialists provide a range of services to farmers including crop walking, disease advice, pest control, appropriate spray selection for economical chemical use and sprayer upkeep and certification.

The company also supplies a large range of fungicides and pesticides for Irish farmers.
