DLF Pickseed USA announces that it has purchased X-Seed. The acquisition is expected to give DLF further access and brand awareness to the retail trade of consumer seed and related products.
X-Seed was founded in 2004 by Chuck Fagin who currently acts as Chief Manager. X-Seed innovated and created the first coir based combination lawn patch products and currently offers a full line of premium lawn, pasture, wildflower and wildlife seed mixtures. “We are very excited to join the DLF team as it will give the X-Seed brand access to an extensive seed and production network with added resources that will allow us to focus on the customer needs and continue to lead in product innovation” – Chuck Fagin, X-Seed, LLC.
DLF Pickseed USA is a subsidiary of DLF Seeds A/S, the world’s largest turf and forage Seed Company with research, production and marketing activities around the globe. The DLF Group commands nearly 30% of the global market share, and DLF is the largest grass seed company in the U.S.A, supplying both turf and forage seed to the professional and retail market.
“We are very pleased to welcome X-Seed into our group. X-Seed has a successful and innovative product portfolio that will enable DLF to further grow our retail presence over the coming years. Chuck Fagin will continue to manage X-Seed for DLF and make sure the transition to DLF will be seamless” – Claus Ikjaer, President & CEO, DLF Pickseed USA.
