SipcamAdvan has opened its new laboratory facility located in Valdosta, GA. The lab augments SipcamAdvan formulation expertise and new product speed to market, both key components of its growth plan for 2010 and beyond.
The lab will facilitate the development and testing of innovative formulas, as part of SipcamAdvan’s launch platform for new technology in the crop protection, turf, and ornamental markets in the U.S. and Mexico.
“The new lab puts SipcamAdvan in great position to meet many of our corporate goals,” says Ron Hatton, director of operations. “It allows us to bring new products to market, supporting the goal of developing a full portfolio of differentiated offers, including bio-rationals. With the lab, we are able to increase speed-to-market which is extremely important in this ever-changing market.”
Chris Cody, manager of quality and formulations, will serve as manager of the Valdosta, GA, facility.
“I am very excited about the new opportunities that the addition of the lab brings to SipcamAdvan. It certainly will assist us in providing our customers with innovative and high quality products,” says Cody.
