The parties have started to investigate a possible Joint Venture in which part or all activities may be combined in the future.
President of Cobb-Vantress, Jerry Moye: â€œCombining the efforts of our R&D teams will make us more efficient. The combination between Cobb-Vantress and Hybro creates an even stronger global leader in broiler breeding with a further complementary portfolio of product, clients, markets and production structuresâ€
President of Hendrix Genetics, Thijs Hendrix: â€œTogether we create a new platform with a new horizon in animal breeding and life sciencesâ€.
The Hybro organisation, genetic lines and facilities will become a part of Cobb, effective immediately. While Hybro will not operate as a stand alone division, Hybro products will be offered as part of Cobb’s portfolio.
Current Cobb and Hybro customers can expect business to continue as usual. Cobb and Hybro’s R&D teams will work together to develop a plan that will give the company its best potential for genetic progress and product development. Related Website
