The company has an annual turnover of around 30 million euros … benefits from strong positions in ruminants and swine and has been developing steadily for several years. Today, it ranks seventh among the country’s premix and firm-services players. Based in the State of Mexico, the company has 84 employees, a production site, and four warehouses around the country. Apligén has a good brand image and an excellent logistics and distribution network
Through this acquisition, Wisium becomes one of the top five players in the premix & firm services business in Mexico.
It will now be equipped to accompany the growing maturity of the Mexican animal nutrition market and to provide a broader range of quality and standardised products and services through a larger distribution network.

It will also give us the opportunity to build on Neovia’s nutritional expertise, global R&D and innovation network. These synergies will translate into an increased dynamics of our portfolio of products and services and an improved customer satisfaction“, said Guillermo Carsolio, Managing Director of Apligén.
