BIOMIN announced Oct. 21 that it is setting up a U.K. business unit, to be headed up by Neil Spreckley as chief operating officer.
BIOMIN said the structure of the U.K. feed market calls for the company to have its own team in the U.K. delivering scientific expertise and solutions tailored to the needs of the local market and customers.
Aside from increasing its U.K. market presence, BIOMIN said its aim is to be one of the leading feed additive companies in the UK within the next five years.
The move to establish a business unit in the country was motivated by the need to be closer to U.K. customers, which would allow for a more direct transfer of technical expertise and value-added services, the company explained. A dedicated technical sales team will also facilitate the development of a full product portfolio of BIOMIN brands that specifically targets the needs of the U.K. feed and livestock market.
BIOMIN, part of the ERBER Group, is based in Austria and it a multi-national company supplying to customers in more than 100 countries. BIOMIN has a product range that includes mycotoxin inactivators, phytogenics, probiotics, acidifiers and preservatives.
