Hamburg - September 27, 2013
The German based chemical company HELM AG has increased its Crop Protection sales by 67% to USD 172m compared with the first half of last year. The positive development was driven from increased quantities and higher prices mainly in Latin America and the U.S. Latin America is still the most important region for HELM with sales of USD 92.4m. This is also the region where HELM started it´s Crop Protection business ten years ago.
Current focus is the successful development in Europe. Here the main markets are Germany+Poland and France+Italy. The development in other European countries will be evaluated case by case. Nevertheless, significant amounts in own data are invested to build up a solid portfolio for the future.
The U.S. business increased significantly by 319% to USD 51.9m. This September HELM moves the office from Memphis to Tampa where HELM’s Fertilizer activities are already located. With this move the foundation is laid for further positive developments in the U.S.
