Wyke /3rd Party/Industrial Sales - Nufarm UK

Wyke Manufacturing, Third Party Phenoxy and Non-Agrochemical Businesses



Wyke manufacturing facility



The Wyke site has a long history. It was acquired in 2008 by Nufarm after many years of private ownership in the hands of AH Marks Ltd. Records show original establishment in 1877 as a Picric Acid manufacturer. The current product portfolio includes phenoxy herbicides, glyphosate, inhibitors and other intermediates. Over 300 people are now employed and more than 70 kilotonnes of chemical conversions are carried out per annum at the site.
The major part of Wyke production is sold into the agricultural sector. The site is most widely known as a supplier of phenoxy propionic, acetic and butyric herbicides in the form of CMPP-p and DP-p, MCPA and 2,4-D, MCPB and DB. Our flexible phenoxy manufacturing unit is, we believe, the worlds largest. The site is also a major formulator and packer of Glyphosate products.

The above active ingredients are formulated and subsequently marketed under a number of trade names. The key brands within Europe are OPTICA,AGROXONE,MATON,BUTOXONE and HERBOXONE.

Nufarm offers expertise to develop new herbicide formulations. We have the facility to conduct field trials on commercial farms and maintain close links with authorities outside the UK, in order to establish development programmes world wide. We also have a locally based registration group who ensure that the requirements of the regulatory authorities are met. Nufarm itself and through industry taskforces own the latest scientific data on our products,essential for meeting the stringent requirements of registration authorities worldwide.

Beyond the agricultural sector Nufarm has retained at Wyke some industrial chemical business. This includes toll manufacturing, chemical intermediate sales and the niche Polymerisation Inhibitors Business.

Our inhibitor products include DNBP and a range of stable free radical products or Tempos. Combination of the strong heritage of chemical manufacturing with investigative analytical services has helped the business to deliver products to solve fouling problems in vinylic monomer production across the globe.
