Gowan takes Isagro S.P.A private and begins integration into Gowan

Yuma, Arizona-based Gowan Co. announced Aug. 9 the finalization of the purchase of Isagro S.p.A. Isagro is now a privately owned company controlled by Gowan. In the coming months, Gowan will integrate the Isagro business.

The purchase expands Gowan’s commercial opportunities, deepens scientific capability and introduces chemical synthesis. With this acquisition, Gowan adds a basic position in several active  substances, including copper hydroxide/oxychloride, tetraconazole, and kiralaxyl.

Juli Jessen, chief executive officer of Gowan Group, said, “Since we aligned with Isagro eight years ago, Gowan’s field development and face-to-market have built on Isagro’s manufacturing and scientific skills to address specific needs on the farm,” Juli Jessen, chief executive officer of Gowan Group, said in a news release. “Now as one group, we enthusiastically welcome the opportunity to communicate and create these seamlessly.”

Gowan Group is a global, family-owned agriculture solutions business headquartered in Yuma, Arizona.

Gowan specializes in developing, marketing, and manufacturing global agriculture inputs such as crop protection products, seeds, and fertilizers. Gowan began in 1962 as a local crop consultancy business helping growers identify the right crop protection solutions to help their farms thrive.
