Bayer CropScience seeks buyer for Norwich facility

Bayer CropScience is seeking to sell its manufacturing plant in Norwich as a going concern.

The 47ha site in the north west of the city employs 280 people and produces and formulates crop protection chemicals for sale worldwide, as well as specialist industrial chemicals.

Site manager Tim Green said: "The decision to seek a buyer for the site is part of the on-going global consolidation of manufacturing of agrochemical products for Bayer CropScience. We are confident that a purchaser of this site would find excellent manufacturing facilities with a second-to-none workforce".

The company is consulting with employee representatives and expects to complete its divestment by the end of the March 2012.
