Van Iperen International, Dutch producer of Specialty Fertilizers and Tessenderlo Kerley International, business unit of Tessenderlo Group NV, and Belgian producer of premium Potassium Sulfate (SOP) fertilizers have signed a long-term distribution agreement. Under the terms of this agreement, Van Iperen International will sell premium, water-soluble grade SOP globally, produced at Kemira’s plant in Helsingborg (Sweden). This plant, owned and operated by Kemira Oyj, has recently signed a long-term partnership agreement for SOP with Tessenderlo Kerley International. The agreement is scheduled to become operational as of January 2021.
SOP is one of the preferred sources of Potassium mainly used in Open Field fertigation and in greenhouses. The customers of Van Iperen International are already familiar with the top-quality Potassium Sulfate produced by Kemira as they were already cooperating for many years before the new agreement with Tessenderlo Kerley International was signed. With this partnership, Van Iperen International ensures continuation of worldwide supply and distribution of Swedish premium SOP as one of the worldwide players in Specialty Fertilizer.
