To maximise harvests and protect crops to obtain the best yield possible from the land. This has been IQV’s goal ever since the family company was founded. Over the years and thanks to the creation of our first laboratory in 1966, we have become one of the country’s leading fungicide producers.
IQV’S ORIGINS DATE BACK TO 1935, WHEN THE FAMILY COMPANY WAS ESTABLISHED IN MOLLET DEL VALLÉS TO PRODUCE COPPER SULPHATE.
We launched Caldo Bordelés Vallés (Bordeaux Mixture) in 1968 as our first own-brand product marketed directly to customers. We are currently the world’s largest producer of this fungicide.
Years later we began producing and formulating the two other main copper compounds used in agriculture: Copper Oxychloride (1973), of which we are currently one of the world’s largest producers; and copper hydroxide (1998). In 1996, we launched our first metalaxyl-based formulations.
The company’s international expansion began in 1980 and was increased in 1995.
The process culminated by strengthening our extensive international distribution system with the opening of subsidiaries in Italy and Portugal in 2002, the United States in 2008 and China in 2013.

We have had one aim since 1935: to supply the most effective and sustainable solutions for protecting farm crops.
