Already a swine genetics powerhouse in North America, Newsham Choice Genetics has taken a major step toward its goal of becoming a global leader in swine genetics technology.
In January, Newsham Choice Genetics became fully vested as a division of Groupe Grimaud, a global leader in multispecies genetic innovation.
This strategic move enables Newsham Choice Genetics to maintain its pin-point focus on swine genetics technology while leveraging the exceptional technological know-how of Groupe Grimaud’s experts in genetics and life sciences.
“Groupe Grimaud has been a great strategic partner with Newsham’s ownership group,” says Brent Mitchell, Newsham Co-CEO. “As we worked together over the past couple of years, we became increasingly aware of exceptionally strong alignment with both Newsham’s business goals and our vision for the global industry. It became obvious to all parties that fully integrating Newsham Choice Genetics into the Groupe Grimaud organization would accelerate our ability to not only reach, but surpass what we could accomplish as strategic partners.”
“As a global leader in multi-species animal genetics, Groupe Grimaud understands the future growth opportunities in swine genetics,” says Frederic Grimaud, president of Groupe Grimaud. “Newsham Choice Genetics continues to utilize leading technologies to grow our market. This ownership change indicates our dedication and support for the Newsham Choice Genetics business and ability to create genetic change at an unprecedented rate to meet the demands of the swine industry. We also see a real opportunity to extend Newsham business worldwide through the global network of our group as well as a larger cooperative emphasis in R&D innovation and product development.”
