Industry Update: Valent and Nufarm Join Forces in the Aquatics Market

Valent Corporation signed a formal agreement with Nufarm Americas giving them exclusive distributorship of its products. All of Valent’s Professional Products, including its aquatics products Clipper and Tradewind will now be sold by Nufarm.  “This partnership will unite two highly complementary businesses to bring our customers one of the largest and most complete portfolios in the industry,” said Andy Lee, executive vice president and chief operations officer at Valent.

In the move, Bo Burns was named the National Aquatic Accounts Manager. “I’m excited about the new arrangement” said Bo “because it gives me more products to help our customers solve aquatic problems.” He said the change should also enhance customer service and support. Bo said “Other than the company name and logo change, my duties really haven’t changed”.
