Experts in 4 markets
To meet all the requirements of their customers, SBM has positioned itself in four businesses,
allowing them to benefit fully from each innovation.
Our 4 businesses
Home and Garden
The merger of Bayer Garden, Bayer Advanced and Novajardin in October 2016 into the company SBM Life Science
allowed SBM Company to take a position as a worldwide leader. All the consumers’ activities for the Home & Garden protection
gather more than 350 collaborators in the United States and Europe. With more than 2500 products,
SBM Life Science positions itself as an indispensable actor of its market.
It is the mastery of the entire chain that guarantees the security and quality of its products.
In their recommendations, SBM Life Science orients their choices towards biocontrol or natural products.
Only in the case of an absent solution would synthetics come into play.
It is thanks to the synergy of its product’s range that SBM Company can offer its customers
a global approach of gardening and home protection.
An extended range of products
SBM Life Science benefits from collaborations with the other activities of the group (Research & Development, registration, industrialization, supporting functions). It is thanks to this synergy and the strength of its brands that SBM Company can continuously adapt their offerings to satisfy the needs of the customers, with innovative and efficient products that respect man and the environment.

CMPA (Compagnie Méditerranéenne des Produits pour l’Agriculture -Mediterranean Company of Products for Agriculture)
is the entity dedicated to the commercialization of crop protection products, for the agricultural market.
From 2002, the group decided to invest in the defense of an insecticide molecule
on the agricultural markets, cypermethrin.
To ensure the commercialization, SBM Company will, from now on, rely on its CMPA branch.
Through the formulation expertise of the group, CMPA was able to create, register and commercialize
two innovative products in France and then in Europe and North Africa:
– A soil insecticide, non-systemic – which does not penetrate the plant -, acting through contact,
respecting pollinating insects. (Belem®/Daxol®). The launch of this product was a premiere in Europe.
– An aerial insecticide with a broad spectrum of efficacy, a water-based formula (70%),
allowing a strong reduction of solvents, guaranteeing safety and comfort of use.
A long term commitment
Faced with long term challenges of world population growth, CMPA keep on investing in new projects,
believing in the relevance of an effective plant protection which respects human being and nature.

thanks to their dedicated equipment allowing them to satisfy all the needs of the market in Fungicides,
Insecticides and Molluscicides. Their production is mainly intended for the agricultural market.

mainly aimed at the garden range. On this site, natural products (fertiliser, biocontrol herbicides…),
certain conventional products, rodenticide products, biocontrol products and other anti pests are manufactured.
– Pasadena (Texas, US) formulates and packages fungicides and insecticides. Acquired in 2017, this site allows us
to integrate more on the American market to serve the local needs but also to propose its expertise
to the different actors of the market in the United States.
Each of our sites rely on their own quality control laboratories and their own means to validate
the optimisation of the implemented processes.
