of Queen Anne's Gate, London

1969 The Foseco group had grown so much since it was floated that it made to sense to take over Minerals Separation since the 2 companies shared similar aims and had the same chairman; the new company was called Foseco Minsep[1].

1969 Foseco Minsep operated in 3 industrial sectors[2]:

  • Proprietary products for the metallurgical industry
  • Consumables for the building and construction industry through Celmac Ltd and Chemical Building Products Ltd, and international planning through Nitol Ltd
  • Treating industrial waste and effluent through Fospur Ltd

It was planned to expand these activities through self generated actions, acquisition and licensing.

1991 Acquired by Burmah-Castrol which then sold off the building products group[3]
