British Salt acquired by Brunner Mond

British Salt's Middlewich plant
 
We are delighted to announce that Brunner Mond has acquired the entire issued share capital of Cheshire Salt Holdings Limited, the parent company of British Salt Limited. The acquisition remains subject to regulatory approval, which we expect to receive before the end of January.
 
Brunner Mond is the UK’s only soda ash and sodium bicarbonate producer and one of Europe’s largest manufacturers in this field. It is wholly owned by Tata Chemicals Ltd (TCL) – one of the world’s largest and most geographically diversified chemicals groups with a worldwide reputation for innovation, quality of customer service and commitment to sustainability.
 
TCL is part of the Tata group of companies, which comprises over 90 operating companies in communications and information technology, engineering, materials, services, energy, consumer products and chemicals. The group has operations in more than 80 countries across six continents employing around 395,000 people worldwide, and its companies export products and services to 85 countries.
 
We believe this is excellent news for our employees and customers, as British Salt becomes part of a leading European manufacturing business which shares our commitment to providing the highest levels of product quality, customer service and reliability of supply, and ultimately part of one of the world’s largest and most successful companies.
