Brisbane, Australia: Indigo Specialty Products (ISP), a business focused on production and supply of plant protection, pest control, plant nutrition, soil, water management and biological products, has joined the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF).
A privately-owned business, ISP was formed and is owned by a small team of industry professionals with extensive experience in manufacture, distribution, development and product registration.
Based in Brisbane, the company specialises in Australasian non-crop and niche horticultural markets, including turf and amenity, nursery production, industrial vegetation management, forestry, pest control and consumer home garden and pest management.
Peter Kirby, General Manager, ISP, said: “Our goal is to manufacture the Indigo product ranges in Australia as much as possible, where we can oversee product quality processes, whilst allowing us the flexibility to modify products to overcome ever-changing challenges.”
While the company’s ProForce (Chemicals) and HydroForce (Soil Surfactants) range of products are largely formulated in Australia using imported materials, its XCel fertiliser and BioForce biological range are manufactured in Australia to the highest possible standards.
Kirby said: “We are heavily focused on local research and development to ensure our products perform at their peak in the Australasian markets. We actively invest in field trial research programmes and modify our formulations to match the local conditions of the key markets in which we operate to maximise performance.
“We strive to be relevant in our core markets, by adding value via overcoming issues and obstacles that are present in the markets we operate within. We do this by focusing on control of key pests or diseases or by solving key management issues that our valued end-user customers have.
“We also strive to be active in the core markets in which we operate by working closely with our allied distributor network, offering support, service and advice where required.”
Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’re pleased to welcome ISP to the Federation as an Associate Business Member. We look forward to the company’s participation in future turfgrass events that we stage around the region.”
