PHYTOBIOTICS Feed Additives GmbH, a Germany-based company involved in research, development and sales of feed additives for livestock and pets with an emphasis on swine and poultry, has established Phytobiotics North America LLC, with headquarters in Wentzville, Mo.
Phytobiotics president and chief executive officer Hermann Roth said, "We are now well established in many parts of the world and have moved from a footprint of five countries in 2000 to more than 70 countries in 2013. As the regulatory process for our products in the U.S. is reaching the final approval stage, it was time to establish a business in North America."
Bruce King, managing partner, North America, will be responsible for building up the business and recruiting a team to serve the North American market. King has worked in both the U.S. and global pork and poultry markets for more than 25 years.
Phytobiotics offers feed additives and consultative services focused on intestinal health, stress reduction and increased nutrient bioavailability for animals.

The head office of Phytobiotics is near Frankfurt, Germany. Phytobiotics also runs area management branches and production sites in Brazil, Thailand and China and maintains selling licenses with more than 45 international partners.
