    Default Croda Unichema, merseyside, Jan 2012

    Visited with maybenot1330, xan Asmodi, sim2lew and squeezethegap.
    -----
    CHEMICAL giant Croda closed its Bromborough factory with the loss of 115 jobs. The international company, which provides speciality chemicals for a range of products including cosmetics, announced the closure at its annual meeting in 2008. Croda, which made 1m a week in the first three months of 2009, said the closure of its Wirral factory was part of the company’s ongoing review of operations. The announcement was another blow for Wirral. Croda’s Bromborough site contributed more than one-third of the revenues of the company’s industrial speciality chemicals division.

    This big old safe was uncrackable, there was actually two large safes in the building


    In the main admin buildings there was a clock tower and the mechanism had been removed and replaced with an electric unit.
