Syngenta sells Hawaii sites

An Iowa company is taking over the Hawaii Syngenta sites, including the location on Kauai’s Westside, but day-to-day activities will stay the same, according to company representatives.

“There are no planned reductions (in staff) resulting from this,” said Paul Minehart, Syngenta spokesman.
