Historical Highlights



Our group started in agriculture at 1926 (as Sapec) and originally set up to exploit pyrite mines in southern Portugal. It quickly integrated vertically into the production of phosphate fertilizers using sulfuric acid produced from pyrite ash, evolving to other inputs for agriculture. The production and marketing of fertilizers, agrochemicals, seeds and animal feeds have for many years been the main and almost unique basic activities of this Group

to a new vision

Almost reaching year 2000, a new vision arises: being an independent, international group with differentiated solutions. Huge investments in factories and labs, and Tradecorp was acquired. Comprising crop nutrition and crop protection branches, we were already at the time present around the world with affiliates, offices, plants and above all its experienced staff adapted to local markets. Service and proximity to the market have always been the key elements of the Group’s strategy.

Starting new opportunities

In 2017, the international private equity investor, Bridgepoint, acquired the Group to accelerate growth, maximize opportunities in new markets and favour new developments and agricultural solutions.

New identity

Important acquisitions were made, strengthening Tradecorp´s path: OGT (2015), Microquímica, and SDP. Biocontrol branch also emerge in the Group with a strategic acquisition: Idai Nature. Our Crop Protection Business Unit was rebranded as ASCENZA ROVENSA is our new corporate identity
