Valent U.S.A. Corporation will expand its commercial business aimed to support the company’s growing specialty and row crop portfolio.
Through this series of expansions, Valent reports that it will enhance service and technical support to customers across the agricultural regions of the United States. The commercial expansions, which will take shape during the next six months, will organize Valent’s sales and technical service teams into three commercial units ― Western, Midwest and Coastal.
A new management team will oversee the commercial units. This management team will be comprised of commercial unit directors and field market development managers whose focus will be providing local, customer-centric farming solutions and technical support to the regions in each unit.
Valent is also expanding its research infrastructure to support the development of new pipeline technologies. The expansion includes investments in new greenhouses and growth chambers at Valent’s Midsouth Agricultural Research Center in Mississippi, which will support evaluation of new active ingredients and formulations in the pipeline.
The company will also invest in upgrades to its laboratory systems to support evaluation of new technology at the Valent Technical Center in California.
