OMAHA — Gavilon, L.L.C. said it plans to expand its business in China to support the company’s grain-trade initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region. As part of the effort, Gavilon Hong Kong Ltd. will add to its fertilizer sales and supply activities by providing destination marketing, logistics and trade finance services for soybeans, corn, barley, wheat and feed ingredients, to support its North American and Australian grain origination volume.

“As global demand for agricultural commodities continues to grow, a strong presence in China will become increasingly important in the grain and oilseed markets,” said David Levine, vice-president of Gavilon’s international division. “We are looking forward to expanding our agricultural network in China and further developing relationships with customers in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Gavilon said its Hong Kong office will be managed by Richard Cheung, who will be general manager of the company’s grain business in China. Mr. Cheung has more than 15 years of experience supporting agricultural customers’ needs in the Chinese market.
