J.M. Huber Corporation Closes Acquisition of the Biolchim Group
Atlanta, Georgia, US (November 2, 2022) — J.M. Huber Corporation (Huber)—a global, family-owned specialty engineered materials manufacturing company—announced today it has closed its acquisition of the Biolchim Group, a leading producer and distributor of a full range of specialty plant nutrition and biostimulants.
All the organizations in the Biolchim Group—including Biolchim S.p.A, Cifo, Ilsa S.p.A, Matécsa Kft, and West Coast Marine-Bio Processing Corp.—are now part of Huber Engineered Materials (HEM), one of Huber’s portfolio businesses. The Biolchim Group will be a key part of the strategic foundation of the Huber AgroSolutions (HAS) strategic business unit of HEM, which currently includes Miller Chemical & Fertilizer (Miller), acquired in 2019.
Huber AgroSolutions’ vision is to become a leading formulator of sustainable, high-performing agricultural products globally. The acquisition of the Biolchim Group, which has achieved impressive growth due to its broad offering of biostimulant and specialty nutritional products, significantly advances this vision by bringing an innovative and entrepreneurial workforce and culture to HAS. Together the companies share a culture that is deeply committed to plant nutrition and the success of its many customers around the globe.
The complementary sales footprint of the combined organizations will enable expanded customer and product access into key agricultural regions globally. HAS is committed to serving the Biolchim Group’s existing customer base and will advance the sales of its products through strong relationships with US-based growers and complementary distribution networks in Latin America and select countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The Biolchim Group’s sales channels are ideally suited to enhance the sales of various Miller products via its strength in Europe and its global subsidiary network.
