Zug, Switzerland, 29 September 2016 – EuroChem Group AG (“EuroChem” or the “Group”), a leading global agrochemical company, today announces further strategic expansion in Central and Eastern Europe through the creation of a distribution centre in Hungary. This will support the Group’s growth, giving it access to local farmers whilst strengthening its footprint in this region.
