ICI Agricultural Division

From Graces Guide

ICI Billingham Division was split into the ICI Heavy Organic Chemicals Division and ICI Agricultural Division in the 1960s.[1]

By 1975, with the availability of North Sea Gas at low cost on long-term contract, the fertilizer division enabled ICI to produce ammonium nitrate at well below market price. By 1975, ICI controlled over half of the British market.

1986 Became part of the new Chemicals and Polymers group[2]

1988 ICI Chemicals and Polymers Ltd started trading; it acquired the business and assets of the Chemicals and Polymers Group and its subsidiaries from ICI; it continued the businesses of the previous Agricultural, Fibres, Mond and Petrochemicals and Plastics Divisions of ICI[3]
