Alabama-based Aviagen has acquired the remaining 50.44% of Ross Breeders Peninsular S.A., the company's distributor for Spain, Portugal and Morocco, in order to further expand its European production base. 

Ross Breeders is one of Aviagen’s key partners in Europe. As part of the deal, the company will be renamed Aviagen S.A. "We are delighted to be in a position to purchase the entire shareholding of Ross Breeders Peninsular and look forward to working more closely with the management team to continue the impressive growth of the business," said Brian Whittle, Aviagen’s president of European operations. "This move is beneficial to both our companies and, most importantly, to our customers in Spain, Portugal and Morocco."
