Briar Chemicals recognises that it is vitally important to all our stakeholders that our site is operated in a safe and responsible manner, providing employment opportunities, and contributing to the UK and global economies through the manufacture of chemical products that benefit society.

The majority of our customers are leaders in their industry sector. The products we make on their behalf help to protect a wide range of crops, increase farmers’ yields in challenging climates, prevent diseases in cattle and sheep, and are key building blocks in the leather, textile and plastics sectors.

We operate an Upper Tier COMAH establishment where our SHEQ philosophy forms an integral part of our business and is demonstrated through our commitment to:

  • Maintaining the health and safety of all
  • Minimising our impact on the environment
  • Ensuring we do nothing to disturb, disrupt or annoy our neighbours
  • Satisfying our customers’ needs

We strictly adhere to international quality and environmental management standards including ISO 9001  and ISO 14001.

As an independently operated business we remain committed to building strong community relations through a comprehensive external communications programme.
