Based in Auckland, AGPRO NZ is New Zealand’s largest manufacturer of direct-to-end-user herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, adjuvants and crop nutrition for the agricultural and recreational markets. It operates as part of RPM’s Specialty Products Group.

Its more than 90 agricultural chemicals serve a range of applications—from farming, forestry and horticulture, to vineyards and turf. As a fully integrated business, AGPRO NZ sources the raw materials, manufactures and packs the products, and then distributes them directly to its end users.

“Since being acquired by RPM in 2000, AGPRO NZ has made valuable connections through sister companies in the Specialty Products Group, which has helped to expand our presence across markets within New Zealand,” said Wayne Binney, general manager of AGPRO NZ. “For example, we leveraged the technical capabilities of Kop-Coat to manufacture our range of AGPRO adjuvants that are used within New Zealand’s agricultural chemical industry.”

In addition to its headquarters, AGPRO NZ operates a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and research laboratory at the Auckland location.
