ANIMAL health and nutrition companies Alltech Australia and Lienert Australia will unite to form Alltech Lienert Australia from January 1.
Alltech Lienert Australia general manager Mark Peebles said the amalgamation would align the offerings and services of the companies, simplify processes and procedures, and will ultimately enhance the quality of service to customers in Australia.
“Alltech Lienert Australia will continue to provide its range of quality Alltech products, services, nutrition programs and technologies throughout Australia,” Mr Peebles said.
“By uniting the companies, we will effectively be combining highly successful businesses in terms of resources and expertise, resulting in even better nutrition, health programs and services for our clients’ operations.
“This move will allow our business to strengthen our nutritional technical support, as well as research and development, to bring new, innovative products to the market.
“Our team will be able to offer a wider range of products for our customers, with more localised nutrition support.
“Customers will now be able to order Alltech, Lienert, Keenan and Alltech E-CO2 products from one company, receiving their order in one shipment and on one invoice. It will also provide clarity on our position in the market.”
Mr Peebles said both Lienert Australia and Alltech were dedicated to bringing nutritional solutions to the farm and the food industry.
“For more than 40 years, Lienert Australia has manufactured, distributed and supplied ingredients, supplements and nutritional expertise to the livestock and feedstock industries in Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines.
“Customers range from small family farms to integrated operations and commercial feed mills.”
Alltech is a family owned company headquartered just outside of Lexington, Kentucky, US, with a strong presence in all regions of the world.
Alltech has operated as a private company in Australia since 1997. Alltech Lienert Australia’s headquarters are in Roseworthy, South Australia.
