AMGC surpasses 2000 member milestone
Seasol, a highly respected, family-owned manufacturer of organic liquid seaweed and environmentally friendly fertilisers, was founded in Tasmania in the 1970s selling a single product made from kelp. Proudly Australian owned and made, Seasol has since grown its operations and now employs 60 staff, manufacturing product from its Victorian headquarters for domestic and international markets including the United States, Malaysia, India, South Africa, Vietnam, Singapore, Mauritius and New Zealand.
Dr Jens Goennemann, Managing Director of AMGC, said: “We welcome Seasol to AMGC’s network and we look forward to working with them to advance their business. Personally I have been a Seasol customer for years, and let me tell you – the grass is greener on my side!”
Upon joining AMGC’s network, Seasol’s Chief Executive Officer Alick Osborne said: “We all hear about advancing manufacturing, but we really wanted to learn more about how. By joining AMGC we hope to tap into their extensive industry knowledge and contacts to advance our operations.”
“We aim to enhance Seasol’s efficiency and productivity and respond more quickly to market demands while leveraging the trust we’ve built with our customers locally and abroad. AMGC’s ability for us to collaborate with area experts is something we also wish to explore more,” said Osbourne.
Seasol understands the importance of continuous improvement with significant resources committed to research and development (R&D). The evolution of the brand’s product portfolio allows for commercial farming, home-garden and horticulture sectors to choose from a broad range of liquid and solid fertilisers to increase crop and pasture yields while improving the company’s growth and performance.
