The factory and production processes have been certified and meet high standards, according to ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment) and ISO 50001 (energy).
COMPO Expert GmbH offers a range of high-quality, innovative special fertilizers for professional users. Its product range encompasses innovative slow-release fertilizers, special mineral fertilizers, coated fertilizers, nutrient salts, liquid fertilizers, trace nutrients as well as soil improvers and plant care products.
“With the completion of its ultramodern facility in Krefeld, Germany, a high-quality product range and a strong team, COMPO Expert is well positioned to further benefit from global growth markets, especially in Asia and Latin America,” said Joseph Pacini, CEO and Partner of XIO Group.
Within the updated plant, the Compo Expert R&D Technical Center is also located. This centre has been essential for the improvement of product quality and optimization of the production process.
