Tata Chemicals Europe’s products — sodium carbonate (soda ash), sodium bicarbonate, calcium chloride and associated alkaline chemicals — play an essential role in everyday life, being used in a variety of industries, from glass, detergents and biscuits to life-saving dialysis treatments and water purification. Formerly known as Brunner Mond, the company was established in 1874. It was acquired by Tata Chemicals, the world’s second-largest producer of soda ash, in 2005.
Tata Chemicals Europe is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of soda ash and associated alkaline products, with manufacturing operations in Cheshire, UK. Soda ash is a vital constituent in a wide range of manufacturing processes including those for glass, detergents and industrial chemicals. The Cheshire manufacturing site produces 900,000 tonnes of soda ash each year.
From 1926 to 1991, the company was part of Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) before being re-established as Brunner Mond.
Tata Chemicals Europe sells its products in over 60 countries worldwide.
