Located at the Lianyungang Four Points Sheraton, the event begins on Monday evening, August 18th with a special welcoming dinner for all guests.

“This Grand Opening Event supports our aim to establish a meaningful presence in China as we continue to grow multi-nationally,” H.J. Baker CEO Christopher Smith commented. “We have a strategic product line-up that will greatly benefit agricultural businesses in China and we want our customers to experience first-hand what we can deliver and the high quality we offer,” Smith added.
The Lianyungang Sulphur Bentonite Plant is overseen by David Yang, H.J. Baker’s country manager for the China based plant. Shanghai Ace Investment and Development Company operates production in Lianyungang through its supply agreement with H.J. Baker Trading Shanghai Company, Ltd.
“China has a limited production of high sulphur containing fertilizers which has caused massive sulphur deficiencies in soils across the extensive farming regions of the country,” Smith added. “In fact, The Sulphur Institute (TSI) currently estimates that the annual deficit in China is now more than two million tons, the largest in the world. This is one of our greatest areas of expertise, and farmers across China will begin to see healthier crops soon after our products are added to their soil,” he stressed.
