FMC has taken on Simon Francis as its new commercial technical manager for Scotland and the North of England.

The move strengthens the company’s commercial team. Mr Francis joins FMC from UPL, where he was commercial and technical manager.

“Simon’s appointment will support FMC’s position as a leading manufacturer of crop protection products, foliar nutrients and biostimulants, and as a supplier of first class technical expertise to its UK customer base,” states, FMC’s UK/IE country leader Simon McMunn.

“FMC recognises that agriculture in the UK and Ireland faces a number of challenges in the short and medium term. The appointment of personnel with exceptional agricultural knowledge and experience will strengthen FMC’s position as a leading manufacturer.”
