- Bromadiolone in 1976
- Difethialone in 1986

from our employees

After LIPHATECH's acquisition, we immediately announced our idea to build a new site in Agen (France), specialising in rodenticides production. The unique Team, which mobilises the company’s firmly established expertise and new skills, approached the project as an opportunity to reassess our processes and facilities to ensure they met new expectations and environmental and social needs.
The Team took on the challenge and successfully saw it through within a short one-year period.
Production Manager

An innovation strategy together with strong brands

In 2003, LIPHATECH inaugurated its production plant in Agen and began marketing its rodent control products to 3D professionals.

In 2006, it became the exclusive distributor of the SENTRI TECH termite control range for Dow France, and rounded out its range of ROZOL®, MAKI® and GENERATION® rodent control products by acquiring AEGIS®, a company specialising in bait stations design and production.

In 2013, LIPHATECH launched the NEORAMUS collaborative research Programme with the aim to develop new solutions for the future (active substance, new bait formulation, …).

With the recent launch of the BIAGRO® and LT KLEAN-AGRO™ brands for the agricultural and animal health market and FRAP® for non-professionals, LIPHATECH covers all markets in and outside France.

To safeguard a healthy environment by developing innovative and effective solutions, promoting good practices and limiting the environmental impact of our products.
