Brandt completed 2021 with the acquisition of a majority share in Talc USA. The December 31 transaction will expand on Brandt’s existing portfolio of nutrition and plant health products.
Talc USA, founded by Steve Johnson in 2008, offers talc products to improve soil health and yield. The Page, North Dakota-based company serves customers in the United States and Canada as well as Mexico, Ukraine, South Africa, and Mexico.
Talc USA also offers a variety of micronutrients and microbials in addition to its talc-based products. Their unique mixing system allows farmers to apply products in a straightforward and solution-driven way.
“I am excited about this transaction,” said Rick Brandt, president and CEO of Brandt, in a news release. “Steve and Lori [Johnson] have built a terrific company that shares our values: We both believe in maximizing plants’ potential and increasing farmers’ ROI through good science, quality products, and world-class service. We are thrilled to welcome Talc USA into the Brandt family.”
Talc USA will operate under Brandt’s specialty formulations unit. Talc USA employees will continue to manage day to day operations.
