FMC Canada is setting down new roots in Ontario and building its presence across the Canadian crop protection landscape.
Two years after closing a deal to acquire a portion of DuPont’s crop protection business when that company merged with Dow AgroSciences to form Corteva, FMC has opened new corporate headquarters in Mississauga, Ont. In this interview with RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin, FMC Canada country manager Darren Dillenbeck says opening the new office demonstrates that the company is here for the long term and committed to growing its Canadian business.
“We are creating a hub for our management, commercial, R&D and customer service teams to work as one in delivering leading products, new technologies, locally developed solutions and superior customer service,” says Dillenbeck.
Bernard Tobin and Darren Dillenbeck discuss FMC’s growth in Canada, its expanded portfolio and what’s in the product pipeline. Story continues after the interview.
“Long-term, we want to be a trusted partner to more farmers across the country and cultivate stronger relationships with channel partners,” adds Dillenbeck. “To accomplish this, we need to have a strong presence that spans eastern and western geographies so that our customers know they are going to be supported by FMC every step of the way.”
In addition to its corporate head office in Ontario, FMC Canada maintains a research and development site in Hanley, Sask. and manufacturing centre in Calgary, Alta.
