Orion FT acquired by Milbank Group


Orion Future Technology, a biostimulant technology company, has been acquired by the agricultural division (ARK Agriculture) of the Milbank Group.

Founded in 2005, Orion FT supplies about 20 countries, including Italy, Spain, France, Greece and Germany as well as countries in Africa (North, East and Southern) and Central America, with silicon-based biostimulant technology and plant nutrient solutions.

Martyn Charik and Gidon Bahiri, founders and directors of Orion FT said, “We set Orion up 15 years ago and have really enjoyed developing it into the successful international business it is today. We have also enjoyed working with our wonderful customers and friends at Reading and Hertfordshire Universities. We thank them for the friendship and loyalty developed over the years. We explored a number of options for some time and both agreed that the family owned Milbank Group, with its young management team, would take the business forward whilst maintaining the high level of service, research and development that our customers are used to.”

James Kennedy, formally of Gemini Agriculture and Certis UK, takes over as Orion FT commercial director, and will be supported by the team at ARK Agriculture.
