Solutia’s 324-acre (130 hectare) site at Nash, three miles south-east of the centre of Newport, manufactures a range of chemicals which find their way into products as diverse as car windscreen safety glass, tyres, paints, floor coverings, varnishes and washing powders, as well as water treatment products and heat transfer fluids.
The company employs 160 people in a wide range of roles – from engineering specialists, maintenance teams and laboratory staff, through to people working in admin, IT, finance and human resources.
Part of a worldwide group headquartered in St Louis, USA and employing some 5,000 people, Solutia UK turns over more than £101m, about 7% of the company’s global sales.
Every year, it manufactures 120,000 tonnes of chemicals at Newport which are dispatched to over 1,000 customers, many of them worldwide. About 60 per cent of everything made on the site is exported to around 90 countries across the globe.
