Since its founding in 2001, Arysta LifeScience has been one of the fastest growing companies in the industry and is currently among the top 15 agrochemical companies in the world1. Over the past five years, Arysta LifeScience achieved positive sales growth exceeding the industry average.

This success has been made possible by strong, loyal partnerships with:

  • Our customers worldwide;
  • Research or science-based companies that provide us with the most advanced products for development; and
  • Reliable manufacturers of high-quality active ingredients.

In addition, we’ve proven our ability to bring products to market rapidly and effectively using a unique, solutions-oriented approach to portfolio management that focuses on the most profitable opportunities in our selected markets.

  • New product development and registration in select local markets;
  • Formulation and product packaging from externally sourced active ingredients; and
  • Marketing and distribution of both value-added and off-patent products to local wholesalers, retailers, cooperatives and, in some cases, directly to the farmer.

Our hybrid business model with a balanced, 50:50 mix of value-added and off-patent products, allows us to maintain a nimble, asset-light, low-capital investment approach, which is both downturn-resistant and highly scalable.
