The company established its own Research and Development Centre to develop and produce new chemical formulations.
August production sites are located in three countries: Russia, Belarus, and China. The main producton site is the Vurnary Mixed Preparations Plant based in the Chuvash Republic, Russia. It is the most up-to-date and highly specialized domestic producer of chemical crop protection products.

In 2009 the first production line of August-Bel Crop Protection Plant was put into operation in the Republic of Belarus.
Due to our proactive R&D, technology and investment policy, the August Inc. products equal competing brands by major international companies.

Efficient management of product portfolio and direct sales system allow August Inc. to be well positioned in Russia and the CIS. The next step is to access foreign markets.
