Biomin Establishes New Business Unit in the UK

22 October 2013

UK - New UK operations will focus on local feed and livestock needs with customer-specific technical expertise and the full suite of well-established Biomin product brands.

Biomin has announced that it is setting up a UK business unit, to be headed up by Neil Spreckley as Chief Operating Officer.

The structure of the UK feed market calls for Biomin to have its own team in the UK, delivering scientific expertise and solutions tailored to the needs of the local market and customers.

Aside from increasing its UK market presence, Biomin aims to be one of the leading feed additive companies in the UK within the next five years.

"Biomin is a well-respected brand name in the animal feed additives market, and hence it is right for them to now have their own UK business, with their own employees, based in the UK.

"Personally, I am delighted to be heading up the business, being able to call upon the significant group technical resources from Austria and the rest of the global operation as and when required," said Mr Spreckley.

The move to establish a business unit in the country was motivated by the need to be closer to UK customers, which would allow for a more direct transfer of technical expertise and value-added services. A dedicated technical sales team will also facilitate the development of a full product portfolio of Biomin brands that specifically targets the needs of the UK feed and livestock market.

Biomin, part of the Erber Group, are based in Austria. They are a multinational company supplying to customers in over 100 countries worldwide. Biomin boast an extensive product range that includes Mycofix® mycotoxin inactivators, phytogenics, probiotics, acidifiers and preservatives, all of which fully utilise natural processes and ingredients, in line with the Biomin philosophy.
