BRANDT, a leading manufacturer of agricultural specialty products, has acquired a majority interest in Target Brasil Fertilizantes Ltda. through its Brazilian subsidiary. Target Brasil manufactures, distributes and sells specialty Ag products throughout Brazil.
This acquisition gives BRANDT its first international manufacturing facility.
Later this year, the company will begin to manufacture BRANDT’s line of foliar micronutrient products–BRANDT Smart Trio® and BRANDT Manni-Plex®–for distribution throughout Brazil.
The three managing partners and all 21 employees will be retained and additional technical sales representatives will be added. The Target Brasil company name will be changed to BRANDT do Brasil; the company will work closely with BRANDT’s Specialty Formulations group under the direction of EVP Bill Engel.
