Base chemicals specialist Borealis quits its Biosuper operations in France: The company plans to sell its phosphate-based dryer and related production equipment to Eliard SPCP during the third quarter of 2014.

La Rochelle/France – This transaction will free up storage space for Borealis’ fertilizer products at its warehouse in La Rochelle, France. Currently, Borealis sells around 150,000 tonnes of fertilizers each year from La Rochelle, where around 40 people are employed. The divestment has no personnel impact, as all current warehouse employees will be needed to handle the additional fertilizer volumes.

“The sale of the Biosuper business and equipment will enable a more efficient use of our assets at La Rochelle”, states Gerald Papst, Borealis Vice President Business Unit Fertilizer. “Being able to handle an additional 10,000 tonnes of fertilizer annually will help us to further grow our business in France and ensure excellent service to our customers.”

“Focussing on Core Business”

“The divestment of the Biosuper business is a strategic step we have taken to focus on our core fertilizer business in France,” says Markku Korvenranta, Executive Vice President Base Chemicals. “Our stated commitment is to grow in Europe. This goal requires a firm focus on increasing efficiency along with reliability and safety.”
