Norbert Dentressangle has extended its relationship with Orange Chemicals for a further three years following a competitive tender.

Under the new contract, ND has transferred the Orange Chemicals business from its tank storage facility in Dagenham to its dedicated hazardous goods warehouse and drumming plant at Acton Grange, near Warrington.

ND receives up to 12 tankers per month and is responsible for the discharge of mainly solvents and glycols into bulk containers and drums. The company is also responsible for the sampling and testing of product to ensure quality standards are maintained.

Founded in 1976, Hampshire-based Orange Chemicals supplies a range of mainly petrochemical-based organic chemicals to major UK manufacturers.

John Millett, managing director of Orange Chemicals, said: “We recognised that Norbert Dentressangle’s Acton Grange facility offered the right level of expertise and infrastructure, and will act as an excellent platform for future growth in our solvents and glycols business.”
