Sipcam was founded in 1946 in Milan as a company specialized in manufacturing and marketing of agrochemicals for agriculture in Italy.
Oxon was founded in 1970 with the purpose to produce their own chemical synthesis of some out of patent active agrochemicals. Today the two organizations still have the same ownership: the two families Gagliardini and Ciocca.
The SIPCAM OXON group is made up of two separate legal entities (Sipcam and Oxon), which refer to one property and to one management, working independently but acting in synergy sharing mission and vision. Sipcam Oxon is committed to maintain its independence by integration of entrepreneurship and management skills.
As the agriculture sector is influenced by variables not conditionables, and linked to cyclical developments and trends, the group has decided not be listed in the Stock Exchange. The purpose is to develop tools for self-financing and access to bank credit, aiming to the medium and long term outlooks, and not influenced by the short term results.
The industrial presence consists of one chemical synthesis plant in Italy, three formulation plants in Italy, Spain and Brazil, one seed processing and treatment plant in Italy and two synthesis and formulation plants operated by Chinese Joint Ventures.
Since the beginning of the company, the main thread is the proximity to the world of agriculture and the ability to understand and interpret the customers’ needs, to improve, simplify and make the business in agriculture more safe, sustainable economic, profitable and productive.
