Mr. Wintemute continued, “It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the tremendous contribution that Alfredo Pelaez has made to the Company. He has built up our international organization virtually from whole cloth. In the process, he has integrated and launched newly acquired products on multiple continents, established a reliable network of distribution and handled all manner of issues relating to registration, production and logistics. He has been a valuable resource to AMVAC and will leave behind a platform that is poised for even greater success.”About American Vanguard American Vanguard Corporation is a diversified specialty and agricultural products company that develops and markets products for crop protection and management, turf and ornamentals management and public and animal health.
