Organic segment

The organic segment is the second largest pillar of the business activity of the CIECH Group. In 2016, it generated 9% of Adj. EBITDA (adjusted by one-off events). Products falling within this segment are manufactured by the following two companies: CIECH Sarzyna S.A. (crop protection products and resins) and CIECH Pianki Sp. z o.o. (polyurethane foams).

The CIECH Group is the largest domestic producer of crop protection products and the leader in the market of herbicides. It is also the main domestic manufacturer of resins which are present in European markets, and one of the largest suppliers of polyurethane (PUR) foams to the domestic market.

In the AGRO area, the key issues include the extension of the product portfolio, which is the responsibility of CIECH R&D Sp. z o.o., building new distribution channels (including foreign expansion), strengthening sales forces, intensification of marketing efforts. As part of the strategic expansion of the organic segment, CIECH Sarzyna S.A., for many years, has been developing product brands in the agro area: Chwastox, Agrosar and others. In 2016, the Company also introduced a new product line in the market in the Home and Garden category – ZIEMOVIT. This brand covers products such as the highest-quality surfaces, seeds, plant protection chemicals, as well as liquid and granulated fertilizers. The newline products became available in stores in March 2016.

In the plastics area (resins), CIECH Sarzyna S.A. is optimising the current product portfolio and selectively developing new, high-margin specialist products used in the transport, construction and consumer goods segments.
