AgData has closed the acquisition of Focus Technology Group (FTG), a technology-based organization that provides data driven solutions and services to clients in the animal health, agricultural and specialty pet industries. With the acquisition of FTG, AgData extends its reach into new markets, strengthens its position as a global leader in data-enabled software solutions for the animal health market, and complements its exemplary service and solutions to seed and crop input manufacturers and retailers.

FTG has developed innovative data collection and management solutions allowing customers to analyze information quickly and make intelligent business decisions. FTG’s core business will be integrated into AgData’s growing Animal Health Division, which provides a suite of data enabled solutions to veterinarians, manufacturers, feed mills and specialty pet markets. “FTG is very excited about the next step in our journey. We believe that the combination of our expertise in the animal health market with AgData’s infrastructure, scale and data management experience will allow us to enhance and expand our services,” said Jimmy Haverstick, CEO and founder of FTG.

“FTG is a creative and innovative organization that serves a growing market,” said Andy Zupsic, AgData’s newly appointed CEO. “Combining AgData’s experience and offerings with those of FTG means that we can more completely meet the needs of the animal health market. I am thrilled to be joining AgData as it capitalizes on its success, and I look forward to leading an organization focused on supporting its customers in making better decisions based on better data.”
