This month, Antonio Rosset, Commercial Director of Leeco® Trading, and Denton Nordhues, Leeco Steel’s CEO, attended the Fertilizer Institute World Fertilizer Conference. The conference took place in Chicago September 23-25, 2019. The TFI Conference was held by The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), an organization that advocates for the fertilizer industry and hosts networking opportunities for various suppliers, importers and producers. Over 700 professionals from as many as 60 different countries attend the TFI Conference every year.

Leeco Trading attended the TFI conference to connect and network with trusted suppliers. The conference was well organized, and we were able to network and learn from many leaders in the industry. Here are some of our pictures from the event!

Denton Nordhues met with leadership from Agrifields, a Dubai-based company that specializes in producing phosphatic fertilizers, along with other fertilizer products. Leeco Trading recently started supplying phosphatic fertilizers, so it was great to discuss the opportunities and challenges of this product line.

Antonio Rosset connected with the Director of Mani Agro Chemical during the conference. Mani Agro Chemical is a processor, importer and supplier of various agrochemical products, many of which would be good solutions for our South American customers.

The Leeco Trading team had a great time hearing from industry leaders and networking with hundreds of professionals at this year’s conference! We learned more about policies that impact the global fertilizer industry and extended our network of trusted suppliers. With the knowledge and relationships we developed at the conference, our team has even more resources to help our customers find the right source for their fertilizer products.

We look forward to attending the 2020 TFI Conference in Washington, D.C. and continuing to grow our network of suppliers!
