Adisseo group acquires Rhodia's products
Adisseo, a world-leading producer of nutritional
additives and solutions used in animal feed, has acquired Rhodia's Sulphur and
Regeneration Products business unit. This initiative supports Adisseo's strategy
to develop its presence in the market for methionine, an amino acid essential to
animal feed, and of which the Group is already the world's leading producer.
's Sulphur and Regeneration Products business unit was
in fact the leading supplier of sulphuric acid and sulphuric hydrogen used in
the production of methionine. This activity reported annual sales of €47 million
in 2005 and employs 70 people, primarily at its site in Les Roches de
(Isère department of France), where Adisseo
manufactures intermediate products also used in the
production of methionine.
As Gérard Deman, Chairman of the Adisseo group, declared: "This acquisition
enables us to strengthen our industrial production capability and to develop our
competitiveness in the world methionine market, which is showing continued
growth. The acquisition also adds a new, profitable and value-creating activity
to the Adisseo group".
