Imperial Chemical Industries

The origins of the chemical industry in Cheshire date back to Roman times, when salt was mined in the county. Brunner Mond was founded in 1873 and the records of the company, together with those of companies such as United Alkali, with which it amalgamated in 1926 to form Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), are an important part of the industrial heritage of Cheshire.
