Croda International, the speciality chemicals company for high performance ingredients and technologies is starting its major capital expansion project at its Hull manufacturing site in Yorkshire.

Croda’s Group Chief Executive, Steve Foots, handed over the project to Project Manager John Batty for work to start on the investment that will nearly double existing capacity; and which is in line with the company’s strategy to invest in faster growth markets, enabling it to satisfy growing demand for its renowned polymer additives. This technology is used by global polymer manufacturers to address issues such as friction, scratch resistance and stability of plastic materials used in multiple industries including automotive and packaging.

Foots, during a ceremony to mark the start of the project said that it is one of the largest capital investments Croda has ever made at any of its European operations. The project will combine cutting edge technology with optimised production and process efficiencies ensuring that Croda can continue to supply the highest performing and most innovative products to its customers across the world.
