Our roots are in the pharmacy business.

Pioneer in the discovery of anticoagulants

LIPHA discovered that anticoagulants could be used for rodent control and filed patents for three of the eight major active substances used in the world today:
- Chlorophacinone in 1961
- Bromadiolone in 1976
- Difethialone in 1986

The LIPHA agricultural division is created: LIPHATECH
German pharmaceutical group Merck acquires LIPHA

DE SANGOSSE bought LIPHATECH’s rodent control business from MERCK. Growth accelerated.

from our employees

Following the acquisition, we immediately announced our idea to build a new site in Agen, France, specialising in the production of rodenticides. 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

a strategy of innovation and 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.

In 2013, LIPHATECH became involved in the NEORAMUS collaborative research programme supported by Bpifrance.

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

To safeguard the environment by developing innovative and efficient solutions, advocating for good practices and limiting the environmental impact of our products.

Makingrodent control everyone’s business

As the market leader in rodent control, we take our mission seriously and go beyond strictly manufacturing and selling products. We invest in inter-branch professions, in France and in Europe, to advocate for the sector and deploy all our energy to countering preconceived ideas. To effectively fight against damage caused by rodents and protect property, resources and human health, LIPHATECH develops educational tools and supports professionals.


Because LIPHATECH is a subsidiary of DE SANGOSSE, which is a majority employee-owned company, the company has total freedom in its operations and can maintain a strong investment policy, especially with regard to basic research and the company’s industrial facilities. The amounts budgeted each year, regardless of the economic climate, to create new solutions and modernise the plant’s equipment (between 15% and 20%), help to ensure regular and sustainable growth, thus keeping the business sustainable.

The regulatorydepartment

LIPHATECH has a regulatory department specifically for biocides. Its comprehensive knowledge of the official regulatory bodies sets it apart and helps the company successfully navigate the complex process from the approval of active substances at European level to national decisions to authorise the marketing of products. The regulatory department is involved in inter-branch professions and federations at an international level and undertakes all key actions on behalf of the industry. Today, LIPHATECH is recognised as a committed leader that places the interests of the sector ahead of its own interests.
