Arysta LifeScience has announced plans to relocate its global headquarters from West Palm Beach, FL, to Cary, NC, over the coming months. The company’s global headquarters will host key functional areas including Global R&D and Regulatory, Global Supply Chain and Operations, Global Product Management, Global Finance, and Global Human Resources.
“While being co-located in West Palm Beach with the global headquarters of our parent company (Platform Specialty Products) has served Arysta LifeScience well, the Research Triangle Park has a large concentration of key players in the agricultural industry as well as leading universities, which will facilitate business and research collaborations and make it easier to attract world-class industry talent,” said Diego Lopez Casanello, President, Arysta LifeScience.
Between 2014 and 2015, Platform Specialty Products formed a new Agricultural Solutions segment after acquiring Arysta LifeScience, the Agriphar Group and Chemtura AgroSolutions. The three businesses operate today as one team under the name Arysta LifeScience.
“With the larger part of the integration behind us, it is a good time for our Agricultural Solutions business to consolidate its position by relocating to one of the world’s most important innovation hubs in the industry. The new headquarters will support our efforts to expand our position as a key partner to farmers around the world,” said Rakesh Sachdev, CEO of Platform Specialty Products.
