Everris Americas, an ICL Specialty Fertilizers company, recently acquired the manufacturing equipment of X-Calibur Plant Health Company in Summerville, S.C.
The purchase includes a fertilizer coating line and associated handling, processing and packaging equipment. The equipment provides Everris with additional manufacturing capabilities to bring its new products to the market, including a controlled-release fertilizer technology currently under development by Everris’ Global R&D Center in the Netherlands.
The equipment acquired by Everris will remain in a 42,000 sq. ft. facility which is approximately 15 miles from Everris’ controlled-release fertilizer production facilities located in Charleston, S.C., where it produces its Osmocote controlled-release fertilizers and other coated products.
The newly acquired equipment will enable Everris to introduce a new proprietary product that complements its Osmocote and Poly-S controlled release technologies early next year.
