Timac Agro UK is set to officially open its new head office – at the Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise (RoCRE) – on 25 January 2018.
The firm, which specialises in revolutionary crop, soil, plant and livestock nutrition moved to the Hertfordshire site at the end of last year to further develop its research and industry links. “Our job is to enhance nutrient efficiency to better meet plant and animal needs and help farmers to make greater margins,” explains Cyril Cappe, general manager at Timac Agro UK. “By moving our offices to the heart of British agricultural research we can ensure we continue to do that.”
The grand opening is due to be held on Thursday 25 January at the Rothamsted Research Conference Centre at 3pm and will feature speeches by Cyril Cappe and local MP Bim Afolami, who recently wrote in The Times that the UK remains a magnet for international investment and entrepreneurs, despite Brexit uncertainty “Britain must demonstrate that we are open to business, and to growth, innovation and entrepreneurship from all over the world,” he said.
Mr Cappe adds: “We want to build sustainable business for farmers and for the next generation of Timac Agro UK. To do that, we need to go a bit further than everyone else, working with scientists and experts in their field to increase nutrition efficiencies. This move is a key milestone to allow further development and reinforce our links in the UK agricultural market.”
