Birch Chemicals is proud to announce that it is now part of the Mississippi Lime (MLC) family, following the US company’s wider acquisition of the Singleton Birch group in early September 2022. Financial terms of the transaction will not be released.

Birch Chemicals is a leading supplier of innovative products and specialty chemicals to the Rubber, Plastics, Coatings and Adhesives markets, with a network that spans over 30 countries. It will continue to operate as such, both under its existing brand and from its North Lincolnshire headquarters. The current management team will remain in place, providing stability and expertise in continuity.

Steve Foster, Director of Birch Chemicals, says: “We’re really pleased, because MLC and Birch Chemicals are a ‘great fit’ in terms of ethics, innovation and excellence. All of the hard work we’ve put into embedding top quality products into the global market has meant that our customers completely trust us to deliver on every level. They can rest assured that we’ll continue to do so as we embrace all new opportunities for growth. In fact, the whole Singleton Birch group is presented with an even brighter future”.

“Singleton Birch has done tremendous work and we are grateful that the leadership team will remain in their roles leading the business,” adds Paul Hogan, President and CEO of Mississippi Lime Company. “This acquisition will enable us to invest more and power growth. We’re delighted to have a partner who shares our culture and values.”
