Overview

FMC Corporation is an agrochemical company serving agricultural markets globally for more than a century with innovative solutions, applications, and quality products. FMC acquired Cheminova in April of 2015 to deliver direct market access channels, broadened product lines, and improved operating performance in key global regions. Revenue totaled approximately $3.3 billion in 2016. FMC employs approximately 6,000 people throughout the world and operates a unique, variable cost manufacturing and supply chain model that provides operating flexibility, lower costs, and strong performance.

Ever since our beginning in California in 1883 when John Bean invented the first piston sprayer for agriculture, FMC has continued a proud heritage of pioneering solutions for our customers. Today, we use an array of advanced technologies in manufacturing, research and development to produce customized products and solutions for the many regions we serve.

 

As a global leader in the agro-chemicals business, FMC provides innovative and cost-effective solutions to enhance crop yield and quality by controlling a broad spectrum of insects, weeds and disease, as well as in non-agricultural markets for pest control.

 

Following the close of the DuPont transaction, FMC will be a significantly larger crop protection company with a broader manufacturing footprint, a more complex supply chain, and a greater need to track, report and analyze business performance in a timely, accurate manner. Beginning in 2018, we will launch an initiative to modernize our business processes and systems, which will include investment in a new SAP suite that will support all core business processes.

 

We have been operating with an SAP system that was installed in the late-1990s, and more recently we added a second SAP system from legacy Cheminova.  The DuPont acquisition presents us with a timely opportunity to modernize and consolidate multiple, inefficient IT systems into a single SAP platform that follows chemical industry best practices and can scale to support our company’s future growth.

 

This is an important project for FMC, requiring a dedicated team of employees and outside consultants who will work together to modernize every facet of our business processes, including Finance, Supply Chain, Logistics, Manufacturing, Sales & Marketing, Regulatory & Compliance, Procurement, Enterprise Master Data, Reporting & Analytics, and other areas.
