Chemical expert appointed to UK team

MANUFACTURER of pesticides, complementary chemistry and molluscicides, De Sangosse Ltd, has appointed Dr Brett Symonds as its chemistry compliance and technical manager.

Brett's role is wide and encompasses almost all chemistry related issues for the company in the UK and internationally. 

He brings significant experience to the De Sangosse team. His knowledge will be integral to development of the company’s product portfolio and managing its protocols. He gained a BSc in Chemistry from The University of Surrey in 2012 and also a PhD from Reading University in 2016, where his research focused on methods to determine rainfastness of agrochemical adjuvants. 

Soon after, he was appointed Technical Advisor at Sumitomo Chemical where he worked across technical and regulatory functions to support the sale of household insecticide active ingredients across the EMEA region.

He said: "The agricultural industry is facing challenging times with loss of chemistry so I look forward to working with the team to identify areas and chemistry that we specialise in to aid and enhance current practices.”
