Kiotech and Agil rebrand as Kiotechagil

 
Following Kiotech International’s acquisition of Agil at the end of 2006, the company has rebranded to become Kiotechagil.  This reflects the bringing together of the expertise in both companies across the three key meat protein sources of poultry, pig and fish.  The agricultural expertise of Agil is now working closely with Kiotech’s aquaculture team allowing more funds to be directed into product development and providing a clear rationale for the new Kiotechagil name.

“Our aim is for Kiotechagil to become recognised as the leading player in supplying high performance natural feed additives which enhance health, growth and sustainability in aquaculture and agriculture,” said CEO Richard Edwards. “Our drive to build closer ties with leading research organisations should also lead to an enhanced product portfolio.”

To help achieve this goal Kiotechagil has strengthened its management team by recruiting Ian Cockshott as Technical Sales Manager and David Bullen as Business Development Director. Ian brings nutrition expertise for both pigs and poultry having previously worked for Aviagen and BOCM Pauls.  While David has significant international experience, having been the Head of sales and marketing for Novartis in the Benelux.

“With our new Kiotechagil brand we now have a clear focus on becoming a leading supplier of natural feed additives to the aquaculture and agriculture industries,” said Richard Edwards.” In addition, with a strengthened management team we can concentrate on developing new products for our customers and opening up in new territories in addition to the 50 countries we currently serve.”
