Our business gets done in the field, and we believe that the most effective way to run it is to put information and decision-making in the hands of our managers and employees. So plant and sales management are decentralized. Each operating division runs its own research and development and marketing functions, on a centralized basis.
Ridley USA Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alltech. We take advantage of our size to keep costs as low as possible. That’s why we manage functions such as purchasing, accounting, human resources, information services, risk management, credit, quality assurance and business development centrally. As a rule, we centralize any function that can result in lower costs or improved efficiency without sacrificing flexibility and service.
