TEESSIDE'S chemical industry was dealt a double blow this morning.

DOW Chemical Company has today announced that it intends to close its Ethylene Oxide and Glycol plant at Wilton on Teesside.

Following this decision, Croda International Plc, which relies upon EO as a core raw material for the majority of its products manufactured at the site, has announced that it will also close its Wilton facility.

The Wilton site, which employs 125 people, is expected to cease production at the end of January, 2010.

Dow is the only company in the UK that currently produces EO, a raw material that Croda is dependent upon to manufacture key products across its Consumer Care and Industrial Specialities markets.
