More than 20 years
at the service of our customers

A family-owned
and independant Group…

Since 1994, we conceive, produce and distribute crop protection products destined for a customer base of professionals and individuals.
Our group is owned and directed by Jean-Paul and Alexandre Simmler, father and son. It has historically developed through organic growth by the creation of new activities and a series of successful acquisitions.
Control of the value chain has allowed us access to the tools required to be able to diversify our activities to ensure our growth and our independence.

The NOVAJARDIN subsidiary, dedicated to the marketing of products for the garden and for the protection of habitat, is an important part of the activity of SBM.

Founded in 1996, NOVAJARDIN was able to rely on the research & development capabilities of the Group, its manufacturing capability and its forward-thinking vision of creating a range of natural organic products, thereby developing in 2001, the first complete range in this category.
