Draslovka Strengthens Its Soil Fumigation Presence in South Africa
A vision towards optimizing soil health
Draslovka Services RSA (Pty) Ltd (referred to as “Draslovka”) is proud to announce a transaction whereby it has acquired the business operations of InteliSoil (Pty) Ltd (referred to as “InteliSoil”). This acquisition will immediately align under the company’s fumigation services division, a leading fumigation provider in the agriculture industry, and greatly enhance its service offering by delivering a seamless solution to growers and farm enterprises.
Draslovka (previously known as Agri Soil) was the first company in South Africa to supply soil fumigation products and services to farmers on a large scale. Since its humble beginnings in 1997 the company has developed into a national market leader in the fumigation of fruit orchards, sports fields, tree nurseries, green houses and tunnels. Draslovka has become synonymous with soil fumigation and re-establishment of fruit orchards.
InteliSoil, a subsidiary of InteliChem (Pty) Ltd has grown significantly during the last 3 years through its comprehensive value proposition. State of the art equipment, supportive technology and a wealth of expertise have been key drivers in its growth path in both the fruit re- establishment and vegetable market segments.
With the integration of the InteliSoil staff and business assets, the expanded business will trade under the Draslovka brand. This integration will result in a quantum leap for Draslovka enabling the business to expand into new territories and improving its value proposition even further.
Draslovka Services RSA CEO, Gielie Basson, commented “this is a significant deal in the establishment of Draslovka as a national market leader and we are delighted to acquire the business of InteliSoil. InteliSoil has a proven track record of superb technical standards, coupled with practical and professional soil fumigation solutions. This acquisition sits at the heart of the Draslovka strategy to be the leading player in the soil fumigation market in South Africa. By further integrating our systems and expertise, Draslovka will be able to offer the most complete Soil Fumigation Solution on the market — improving the bottom-line of our core customers.”
The integration of the InteliSoil business will grant Draslovka the opportunity to enhance its value proposition to growers across South Africa. Draslovka shares the vision of InteliSoil towards developing unique and differentiated products. The complementary nature of the two enterprises will provide additional capabilities to continue the tremendous growth InteliSoil experienced over recent years.
Callie Wolfaardt, exiting Managing Director of InteliSoil expressed his best wishes towards Draslovka in their future endeavours.
