Administrative History Formed in 1926 from the amalgamation of Brunner Mond & Co Ltd, United Alkali Co Ltd, Nobel Industries Ltd and the British Dyestuffs Corporation. Records chiefly comprise those of the predecessor companies Brunner Mond and United Alkali, with only a few of ICI itself, c. 1926-50, and of companies subsequently taken over by ICI: the Chemical and Metallurgical Corporation Lid in 1933, and the Salt Union in 1937. The Brunner Mond records include those of subsidiary companies
