The grand opening and conference support our aim to establish a meaningful presence in China as we continue to grow multi-nationally
Westport, CT USA (PRWEB) October 28, 2014
Global agricultural firm H.J. Baker recently held a grand opening at its Lianyungang Sulphur Bentonite Plant. The occasion was the official launch of the Tiger-Sul sulphur Bentonite production line of two much anticipated fertilizer products in China, T90CR sulphur fertilizer and TZinc micronutrient enhanced sulphur fertilizer.
The grand opening also included a day-long conference for customers in China who wanted to learn more about H.J. Baker’s prestigious line of products and how they will help agricultural businesses thrive in China.
The conference was attended by H.J. Baker CEO Christopher Smith, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Steve Azzarello and Mr. Wangping Sun of Shanghai Ace Investment and Development Company, which operates production at the Lianyungang Sulphur Bentonite facility, as well as more than 20 customers and company officials.
“The grand opening and conference support our aim to establish a meaningful presence in China as we continue to grow multi-nationally,” H.J. Baker CEO Christopher Smith commented. “We have a strategic product line-up that will greatly benefit agricultural businesses in China and we want our customers to experience first-hand what we can deliver and the high quality we offer,” Smith added.
The Lianyungang Sulphur Bentonite Sales & Production planning is overseen by David Yang, H.J. Baker’s country manager for the China based plant. Shanghai Ace Investment and Development Company operates production in Lianyungang through its supply agreement with H.J. Baker Trading Shanghai Company, Ltd.
“China has a limited production of high sulphur containing fertilizers which has caused massive sulphur deficiencies in soils across the extensive farming regions of the country,” Smith added. “In fact, The Sulphur Institute (TSI) currently estimates that the annual deficit in China is now more than two million tons, the largest in the world. This is one of our greatest areas of expertise, and farmers across China will begin to see healthier crops soon after our products are added to their soil,” he stressed.
