GRIFFIN L.L.C. has acquired all shares of Maryland-based Entek Corporation. As a part of this acquisition, Griffin L.L.C. obtained the rights to market all Entek products, technology and intellectual property.

“Entek has several effective and environmentally friendly crop protection products that complement those currently offered by Griffin L.L.C.,” says Jean Pougnier, chief operating officer of Griffin L.L.C. “This move further assures that Griffin remains a leader in bringing value to growers by providing proven crop protection products.”

Entek products acquired by Griffin L.L.C. include CottonQuik, Enzone, Engame, and AMADs technology.

“These are all products that either fit into key markets for Griffin, such as cotton and vines, or in other areas where we have sales and marketing expertise,” says Pougnier. “In fact, CottonQuik has been marketed by Griffin L.L.C., under license from Entek, since its commercial launch in 1996. The rest are established products that will further enhance the Griffin L.L.C. portfolio.”

Griffin L.L.C. is a joint venture of DuPont and Griffin Corporation, and is a customer based, world-class supplier of proven crop protection chemicals.
