Following eight years of successful partnership, SynTech has announced a merger with CAC SMART based in Santiago, Chile, with its field trials coverage across Chile, Peru and Bolivia. The new company will be called SynTech Research Chile SpA. This new business, which will also cover Ecuador and Colombia, is to be headed up by Managing Director, Carlos A. Caballero.
As a result of this merger, and the recent acquisition of Syngenta’s analytical laboratories in Brazil, SynTech’s service in Latin America will be considerably strengthened. The company can now provide the complete spectrum of field and laboratory contract services, including: GEP (bioefficacy) trials for agrochemicals and seeds/traits, GLP trials including ecotoxicology (especially pollinator studies) – as well as a full Regulatory service across the Region.
To reflect this spectrum of service and coverage in all countries in the sub-continent, the company has announced the following management positions and appointments:
- Regulatory Affairs and Business Development Manager, Latin America – Magdalena Zingoni
- Technical Manager, Latin America – Carlos F Caballero
- Country Head, SynTech Argentina – Carlos A Caballero
- Laboratory Manager, SynTech Brazil – Rogerio Rodriguez
- Field Testing Manager, SynTech Brazil – Edilaine Gaitarossa
“I’m very excited by this opportunity to expand both our Business and our Regulatory activities” said Magdalena Zingoni, “I want to share my experience in the Region with our customers’ companies, to help them develop programs to achieve their objectives and register their products. This experience will also be used to help Regulators understand the new agricultural technologies”
“It is a great pleasure to be part of the SynTech LAM team and the new management structure,” says Carlos F. Caballero. “We will work hard to achieve our clients’ expectations in terms of expertise and delivery – and provide them with added value in terms of both technical and commercial advantage.”
