Dutch businesses Ferm O Feed and Plant Health Cure (PHC) have merged into Den Ouden GrowSolutions.
Based in The Netherlands, both businesses specialize in soil improvement and fertility, and offer solutions to stimulate plant growth.
Ferm O Feed develops organic fertilizers and biostimulants and distributes them to 75 countries worldwide. Ferm O Feed has been part of Den Ouden for 30 years.
PHC is a market leader in the field of mycorrhizal technology and soil biology, and has been part of Den Ouden since 2021.
“We will become a one-stop-shop with one point of contact for all services, expertise and product (application) regarding soil and plant improvement instead of two points of contact,” the company said.
While business units Ferm O Feed and PHC will jointly continue under the name Den Ouden GrowSolutions, the former trade names will continue to exist, and the product portfolio will also remain the same.
PHC’s head office will stay in Schijndel, The Netherlands, while the production location of Den Ouden GrowSolutions is located at the current production location of Ferm O Feed in Helmond, The Netherlands. The company says that the production location of PHC in Oisterwijk is now closed and now located in Helmond.
