BRANDT Expands Product Offering for Structural Pest Management

Introducing New Sustainable Products

SPRINGFIELD, Illinois (February 27, 2017) – BRANDT, a leading manufacturer of specialty products for the
agriculture and turf markets, is expanding its pest management product line and rolling out ten new pest
management products.

BRANDT’s pest management portfolio focuses on products that are sustainable and environmentally responsible.
The rollout is a natural progression for the company. BRANDT has a robust sustainable product line and has
been a leading supplier of soft chemistries for the agriculture market for over 30 years.

One of the key new pest management products is BRANDT Antixx Plus Granular. It is a spinosad-based insect,
snail and slug bait that’s naturally derived and bio-degradable. The product will allow customers to treat
sensitive areas where conventional chemistries are not permitted.

“We are thrilled to bring this new class of active ingredients to pest management professionals,” said Mo
Rachadi, Business Manager for BRANDT’s Pest Management group. “This will give our customers more
opportunities to serve more sensitive accounts and grow their business.”

Rachadi has been tasked to develop and implement the PCO go-to-market plan and to introduce new BRANDT
technologies to channel partners and pest management professionals.
