Last December, Red Sun acquired a 70% stake in Shangdong Kexin Biochemical Co., Ltd. that was founded by Mr. Li Dejun “The Father of Paraquat in China”. By allying its brother enterprises in the industry, it has successfully completed the first step to integrate the domestic paraquat industry and has gotten twofold results with half the effort.
In the fourth quarter of 2016, especially in December, the company’s main products such as pyridine, 3-methylpyridine, 3-cyanopyridine, VB3, paraquat and chlorpyrifos took a sharp turn for the better with both production and sales booming, supply tightening and prices raising.
