    Croda—a pacesetter in chemicals

    UK-based Croda has had a manufacturing site at Chocques in Northern France since 2007.  Listed in London, the company is a major player in specialty chemicals used by industries and consumers everywhere. Croda is present in 34 countries around the world, and Europe is a particular focus, accounting for over half of its 3,600-strong workforce.

    Major capital investment at Chocques

    Croda is currently investing €18 million to build a new alkoxylation production facility at its plant in Northern France. The project will increase the site’s capacity by 20% to meet ever-rising demand for some of its most renowned surfactants, and the expansion will create 12 new jobs.

    Key site 

    “This significant increase in production capacity is a strategic investment to ensure that the site can continue to play its role in supporting our global business,” said Steve Foots, CEO of Croda. The investment should lead to others at a site viewed by management as critically important.
