Companies join forces to expand marketing of sustainable solutions.

GERMAN company HELM AG and Britain's Unium Bioscience Ltd are expanding a recently announced partnership, with HELM becoming a shareholder in Unium.
 
The companies state that joining forces will enable them to combine skills, resources and pipeline development so that they can bring sustainable solutions to market more quickly. Unium is a scientific company specialising in biologicals, biostimulants, specialty fertiliser and alternative crop protection and is located in Howden, UK. HELM, based in Hamburg, Germany, is a family-owned company established in 1900 and one of the world’s largest chemicals marketing companies 
 
The Unium products will now be marketed to both companies' customers.
 
Executive Vice President Crop Protection at HELM , Michael Kuhlmann, said: “We have always valued working with innovative companies. In the past we mostly focused on classic plant protection. Now is the time to invest equally in alternative solutions.”
 
John Haywood of Unium 9pictured) added: “HELM is a perfect match to grow our footprint of products into new markets. Unium tools have a proven performance to help farmers in their efficiency and growing crops towards their full genetical yield potential. Combining tools with HELM will create synergies, addressing future global supply needs and will bring value to the market, distributors and farmers.”
