Chemicals manufacture started in 1919 and today the site continues to produce crop protection products for use by farmers worldwide. We employ over 350 skilled people in various roles including manufacturing, engineering, scientific and production support. Our goal is to operate “Safely , reliably and cost effectively” and to help growers protect their crops and increase their yield.
At Syngenta Grangemouth we have four plants dedicated to active ingredient (AI) manufacture, and one finished product formulation and packaging plant with the most recent facility opening in May 2010. Three of the AI plants currently manufacture the world leading active ingredient fungicide, Proven AMISTAR® Technology, and the fourth plant manufactures Syngenta’s blockbuster herbicide AXIAL®.
We have more than 15 years of experience in continuous improvement in formulation and packaging of products based on Proven AMISTAR® Technology including QUADRIS®, AMISTAR 250 SC®, AMISTAR TOP®, PRIORI XTRA®, QUILT® and AMISTAR OPTI® for sales in over 100 countries, as well as other fungicide and insecticide products.
Syngenta Grangemouth and its employees are also active in the local community. The site supports the Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre, a demonstration site to show how urban green spaces can be created from wasteland, and how green amenity areas, including gardens, can be managed to meet both human and wildlife needs. There is also an employee run charities fund which collects donations from colleagues and responds to requests for support and donations from local charities.
