Arysta Lifescience

Good products, great vision, exceptional commitment

Unique business model yields organic growth


Arysta LifeScience is a global agricultural company specializing in the marketing and distribution of innovative crop protection and life science brands. With more than 200 active ingredients, Arysta LifeScience has a well-integrated biological and chemical portfolio to provide complete solutions to growers. The company’s wide range of offerings includes biosolutions; fungicides; herbicides; insecticides; and seed treatments. Arysta LifeScience, which has more than 4,000 employees working in over 100 countries to serve customers worldwide, had 2015 revenues of US$1.8 billion.

Arysta's “asset-lite, high-touch” business model optimizes its cost structure, resulting in greater flexibility and responsiveness to dynamic market changes. The asset-lite model involves mixing and blending ingredients supplied by others to produce unique formulations having performance characteristics that precisely target customer needs. The high-touch component of the model addresses Arysta's skilled research and development capability enhanced by a strong commercial, marketing and technical teams that stay close to the customer.

The new Arysta LifeScience is a consolidation of three legacy businesses: Arysta LifeScience, Chemtura AgroSolutions and Agriphar. The merging of these companies gave the new entity an unrivalled combination of leading products, complementary geographies across the globe, and deep market knowledge built on a combined 270+ years of business experience. Since 2015, the Company has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Platform Specialty Products (NYSE: PAH), based in Miami, Florida.

Since its founding in 2001, Arysta LifeScience has been one of the fastest growing companies in the industry and is currently among the top 15 agrochemical companies in the world1. Over the past five years, Arysta LifeScience achieved positive sales growth, exceeding the industry average and maintaining its position as one of the world's largest privately held crop protection and life science companies.

This success has been made possible by strong, loyal partnerships with:

  • Our customers worldwide;
  • Research or science-based companies that provide us with the most advanced products for development; and
  • Reliable manufacturers of high-quality active ingredients.


In addition, we’ve proven our ability to bring products to market rapidly and effectively using a unique, solutions-oriented approach to portfolio management that focuses on the most profitable opportunities in our selected markets.

  • New product development and registration in select local markets;
  • Formulation and product packaging from externally sourced active ingredients; and
  • Marketing and distribution of both value-added and off-patent products to local wholesalers, retailers, cooperatives and, in some cases, directly to the farmer.

Our hybrid business model with a balanced, 50:50 mix of value-added and off-patent products, allows us to maintain a nimble, asset-light, low-capital investment approach, which is both downturn-resistant and highly scalable.

Complementary Health & Nutrition Science business

The company’s Health & Nutrition Science Unit, which represents approximately 10 percent of Arysta LifeScience sales, operates under three primary lines of business targeting niches within the animal and human health and ornamental plant nutrition markets:

  • Animal Health - offering a range of branded and non-branded products for minor species, companion animals and livestock, including APIVAR®, a world leading proprietary anti-mite treatment for honey bees;
  • Human Health - offering cosmetic and pharmaceutical active ingredients and additives, as well as excipients for the pharmaceutical and food additive industries; and
  • Plant Nutrition - offering controlled release fertilizers for horticulture.

Worldwide resources, distinctive customer- focused point of view

At Arysta LifeScience, we build our portfolio with an intense focus on the customer. We strive to work as partners with our customers by providing high-quality chemical solutions that meet the rapidly changing needs of growers raising a diverse range of crops. That means we offer products that address particular challenges in all parts of the world.

This partnership approach is made possible by our strategic focus on specific functions in the value chain: product development, registration, formulation and packaging, and marketing and distribution. As a result, we can respond to customer needs, expand our business without significant additional fixed costs and quickly capitalize on new dynamics and industry opportunities.

Regional management

We maintain a close connection to customers and their individualized markets by managing our business regionally with global coordination, which allows us to concentrate on identifying, marketing and delivering needed and beneficial products to high-growth markets across the globe. Three key factors have allowed our accelerated, responsible growth that outpaces most competitors:

  • The dedicated efforts of more than 3,400 Arysta LifeScience employees worldwide;
  • Strong, loyal ties to Japanese and other research companies; and
  • A global strategic product development, licensing and acquisition plan.
