In 1993, Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor came to the helm of Acron agrochemical company. Under his leadership, Acron has become a world-leading producer and distributor of fertilizers. The Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs have recognised Acron as ‘Best Russian Enterprise’ ten times.
Today Acron is a large holding producing over 40 chemical products, with an annual output exceeding 4.1 million tonnes. Acron owns and operates three agrochemical facilities: JSC Acron (Veliky Novgorod, Russia), JSC Dorogobuzh (Smolensk region, Russia) and Hongri Acron (Shandong province, People’s Republic of China). The Holding also owns CJSC North-Western Phosphorous Company, with subsoil licenses to mine apatite-nepheline ore deposits, a sales arm called CJSC Agronova, the rail transportation operator CJSC Acron-Trans and two terminal complexes, LLC Andrex (Kaliningrad region, Russia) and AS BCT (Port of Sillamäe, Estonia).
The Russian market has been a high priority for Acron, and the company supplies its products to all farming regions in the country. Acron’s products find a ready market in more than fifty countries on almost every continent. The Holding’s key markets are China, Western Europe and South America.
