Our seed coating activities first began in 1968 when Incotec was a department of the seed company Royal Sluis.

Soon these services were also being offered commercially to other customers and it didn't take long before the first production facility was opened in North America. This was the first of a large number of Incotec subsidiaries worldwide.

Formed from a description of its activities, integrated coating and seed technology, the name Incotec was launched in 1989. The company was ambitious and dedicated to succeed as an independent branch. In 2002 Incotec broke the ties with Royal Sluis becoming fully independent. In December 2015, Incotec joined the Croda Group as part of their Life Sciences business.

Croda is the name behind the high performance ingredients and technologies in some of the biggest, most successful brands in the world: creating, making and selling speciality chemicals that are relied on by industries and consumers everywhere. With more than 4000 employees working in over 30 countries, Croda focuses on developing and delivering a wide range of practical solutions to its customers across nine markets.

Incotec of today is global market leader in seed enhancements employing around 500 people in a growing number of facilities in 13 different countries around the world.

Incotec people are people with a purpose. People who are passionate about their business and about pushing back frontiers. People with commitment, focus, team spirit and respect who have fashioned the company and shaped it into the strong independent global business that it is today.

See below for some history highlights.

We are proud of what we have achieved so far, but as innovators we know that all that is amazing today could be replaced tomorrow by something even better. We don't have much time to stop and reflect on our successes. We're already working on the next step!
