LANXESS successfully completes acquisition of Solvay’s phosphorus additive business

09-Feb-2018

Specialty chemicals company LANXESS has successfully completed the purchase of the phosphorus chemicals business from Belgian chemicals group Solvay including its U.S. production site in Charleston, South Carolina. All relevant antitrust authorities have cleared the transaction. LANXESS and Solvay agreed to the purchase in mid-November 2017.

The site in Charleston includes six production plants, where roughly 90 employees manufacture phosphorus chloride plus numerous derivative products such as flame-retardant additives and intermediate products for agrochemicals. The business represents annual sales of roughly EUR 65 million.

The acquisition is another consistent step in the Group’s growth strategy with a focus on mid-sized markets and the North America and Asia regions.
