Volac’s sales and marketing director David Neville comments: “Volac and ECOSYL are successful in their own right and both have enviable brand positions in the dairy and livestock sector.

"The combined strength of Volac’s sales, marketing and process capabilities with ECOSYL’s market leading forage products will create a partnership that will drive future development and expansion of the home and international silage additive market.”

ECOSYL Products’ former owner, Andy Beardsmore, added: “We are very pleased with the outcome and believe that Volac is the right partner to continue the successful legacy of the ECOSYL brand.

"The acquisition provides the integrated business with a significant opportunity to be the leading global supplier of silage additives and supports Volac’s position as a leading specialist in advancing livestock productivity.”


Beardsmore will take up a key role within the Volac team to develop ECOSYL’s international sales and lead the company’s silage additive research and development portfolio.  FG
