Fast-developing BKW Group
started 2018 quite actively. In February, the owners decided to include Ocean Invest
into the group.
Before the acquisition, BKW Group had 3 business areas: seeds distribution, plant protection products, fertilizers (Bizon-Tech
); trading (Ambar Export BKW
); agricultural production (the LANDFORT
agricultural holding). The acquisition of the Ocean Invest can be explained by the decision of BKW Group to be more active in the generic PPP market. The portfolio of Ocean Invest includes 28 registered trademarks
of plant protection products manufactured at two largest factories in China.
Having increased its size, the Group did not cease to develop other areas. In May, one of the market leaders in the supply of seeds, plant protection products, and fertilizers Bizon-Tech, a member of the BKW group of companies, opened a new line of business — sales and service of agricultural machinery. Bizon-Tech became the official distributor of the Massey Ferguson
machinery by AGCO Corporation
in Western Ukraine – the Lviv and Ternopil regions.
Soon the company expanded its presence to the Poltava, Dnipropetrovs'k, and Rivne regions. The owner of BKW Group Vadim Kovernik
does not hide the fact that this brings the company closer to the goal of becoming the leading and universal supplier of farming products.
The Group is also actively developing its trading direction. In the current season, Ambar Export BKW continues to successfully operate in the deep-water ports of the Black Sea. Moreover, Ambar Export BKW received ISCC certification (international sustainability and carbon certification — ed.
). This is a mandatory requirement for all EU members involved in rational production and processing of biomass and energy derived from it. The company was also included in the list of accredited exporters to China.
These steps let the company strengthen and expand its market potential and achieve its goals. In addition to them, Ambar Export BKW made a rebranding
in 2018. The new brand reflected the principles and the essence of the company: a course to becoming a larger trader.
