  • HELM:Positive transformation and rapid response to address challenges in the industry   2018-03-21

    2017 has been a successful year for HELM’s crop protection business. We foresaw some of the challenges, planned accordingly, and have beaten our expectations on a global basis. The channel inventory situation in Brazil is a challenge, but this has been off-set by growth in other regions of the world. The dramatic increases in prices and availability issues in China are, of course, difficult to manage, but our long-term strategic relationships with our suppliers and our collaborative purchasing behavior has paid off, allowing us to continue to serve our customers in these difficult times.
