READING, England (April 16, 2008) — Safic Alcan has acquired Reading-based specialty chemical distributor Eggar & Co. Chemicals Ltd.
French distributor Safic Alcan said the purchase takes it a step further toward pan-European distribution, and will allow Eggar to handle a wider variety of chemicals in the United Kingdom.
In the short- to mid-term, there will be little change at Eggar, Safic Alcan said. The company will continue to operate from its existing offices using the same team.
No financial details of the sale were disclosed.
