CSBP dumps Landmark

Countryman

CSBP Limited has formally ended its fertiliser agency agreement with Landmark Operations Limited.

However, Landmark WA region director, Mark Trewin, said for the following 12 months, Landmark would continue to work with CSBP to ensure Landmark customers were supported and provided with the same level of services and products they have been accustomed to.

He said while Landmark was disappointed CSBP had chosen to terminate what had been a long-standing relationship, Landmark remained committed to providing its customers with high quality rural products and services through a team of professionals dedicated to meeting customer’s needs.

“Moving forward, we will be investing considerable resources into our fertiliser business and sell a range of products under the Landmark Fertiliser brand. Those products will be supported through existing supplier relationships and we will bring new products to the WA market as we explore globally available options,” Mr Trewin said.

“We will be looking to further expand the fertiliser business by having regional storage to support the Landmark network and our ever growing client base.

“Landmark is well down the track of developing its own fully owned in-house soil nutrition software.

“The statewide agronomy team and technical staff will also be supported by our own laboratory, due to be opened later in 2016.”

Mr Trewin revealed part of the Landmark strategy would be to appoint new people with extensive industry knowledge in the WA fertiliser business.

“These plans and investments reflect our commitment to the WA market,” he said.

“Landmark has for many years had an extensive research and development commitment to WA agriculture, with many trials and larger scale research programs in place. The years of intellect will be used in the business to help bring products suited to WA conditions to the market and the operations team is well down this path.

“Client feedback has always been for dynamic, fair and open fertiliser competition, better prices, greater product choice along with reliable, high quality service backup. We want to reassure clients that moving forward Landmark has a strong fertiliser plan in place and there will be a lot of potential upside.”
