SOGO’s activities are focused on breeding and tissue culture based propagation of orchids for markets in USA, Brazil, South East Asia and Northwest Europe.
In combination with the R&D capabilities, the grower customer base and the distribution network of Dümmen Orange this immediately creates a broader portfolio of products for growers and their customers. The German company has added several growers to its portfolio this year.
SOGO managing director Jeffrey Feng said: "Becoming part of Dümmen Orange will enable us to continue our growth and deliver our extensive assortment to more customers worldwide by using their global network.
"We can also drive innovation by using their technical know-how to create better products and services. It will offer a bright future for our company and our employees."
Yeunjoo Park, president Dümmen Orange Asia, said: "We are very excited to strengthen our position in the fast-growing Asian market. I believe SOGO’s excellent products and supply chain will help us serve our clients better."
Biense Visser, chief executive of Dümmen Orange said: "We are very pleased that SOGO has joined
us. This means that we make the next step in building our global position in the ornamental horticulture sector, it makes our footprint in people and products more diversified. Orchids represent an important product category in our industry with great growth opportunities. We will continue to identify further add-ons in the product group of Tropical Plants. Together with our growers and retail partners we will build on the leading position and competencies of SOGO not only in Asia but also in the rest of the world "
SOGO is a Phalaenopsis young plant supplier located in Taiwan delivering plants to Europe, Americas, Asia, Oceania and Africa employing around 250 workers. The greenhouses have different functions like R&D and young plants production for the domestic market. Part of the greenhouses are certified by the USDA and AQIS, and may export to United States and Australia.
