Reading, UK -- Speciality chemicals distributor, Eggar & Co Chemicals Ltd based in Reading, UK, has been acquired by Safic Alcan, the French distribution company. Eggar currently distributes in the UK for Eastman Chemical, Hexion, Sasol and Sonneborn.
In the short- to mid-term, there will be little change at Eggar, said Safic. The company will continue to operate from its existing offices using the same team.
For Safic, the acquisition takes it a step further on the road to a pan-European distribution system, and opens the door to Eggar to distribute a wider variety of chemicals into the UK sector. Safic said it hopes to take Eggar's annual sales to Euro 35 million from the existing 25 million figure
