The Detia Degesch Group (DDG) based in Laudenbach, Germany has acquired Adalia Group, Inc. (Adalia) effective July 14, 2020.


Adalia is headquartered in Montreal, Canada. They are one of the leading Canadian companies in the field of stored product pest protection. Adalia’s successful business model focuses on ship and container fumigations. “Adalia’s business strategy fits well with the business model of our subsidiary, Degesch America, Inc.”, explains Dr. Marco Rudolf, CEO of Detia Degesch Group, today.

With the synergy provided by this acquisition, DDG strengthens its ongoing efforts for positive growth in the North American marketplace. “We will be better positioned to serve customers in both the United States and Canada. Jointly, our service portfolio will bring important benefits to the extensive customer network of Adalia”, stresses Marco Rudolf.

Business in Canada will continue to operate under its existing company name, Adalia Group, Inc., and current staffing will remain in place. “We are pleased that Adalia’s previous owner will act as Division Manager to ensure a smooth transition, guiding the integration of Adalia into DDG and continuing operations under the direction of Degesch America, Inc. management”, enthuses Herbert C. Yeaman, President of Degesch America, Inc.

The goal is to continue the development of Adalia and to welcome them as an important part of the DDG foundation.
