Caldic UK Throughout the years

Caldic (UK) Limited, now incorporating the former Elastomerics Limited, is the supplier of choice for chemicals and additives for Plastics, Rubber, Adhesives & Sealants, Coatings, Pharma, Personal Care, Home Care, Performance Chemicals for OIl, Gas, Air and Water, as well as for Solvents, General Chemicals, and functional and nutritional Food Ingredients.

Caldic (UK) Limited was founded on 21st September 1988 following the acquisition of Sheppy Chemicals by Caldic B.V.

In 1996 the business moved to a new purpose-built site in Chesterfield, with state-of-the-art bulk storage tanks and filling equipment for the Solvents Division. In 1997 Caldic (UK) Limited diversified into the Speciality Chemicals business, following the acquisition of Gale & Mount from Rhone-Poulenc / Rhodia; the following year a new warehouse was opened to support the growth of the Specialities Division. Further covered drum storage for the Solvents Division was added in 2001, and then in 2005 the offices were extended, to support the growth of the company. The acquisition of Omnichem in 2010 saw Caldic (UK) Limited move into the Acids & Alkalis business, bringing with it the site at Melton Mowbray. And the following year we founded our Food Ingredients Division. A new tank farm with filling and re-packing facilities at the Chesterfield site, for the Acids & Alkalis Division, was installed in 2012. In 2017 a new mixing tank and fill-off line for bespoke bulk and packed Solvent blends was opened.

In October 2017 Caldic UK Limited acquired Elastomerics Limited, a prominent specialty chemicals distributor based in Macclesfield. Elastomerics Limited specialises in the distribution of polymers and additives to the Surface Coatings, Plastics & Rubber, and Adhesives & Sealants industries, backed up by strong formulation and technical support. The Elastomerics product portfolio perfectly complements Caldic’s existing business by expanding our speciality product offering and gives us a stronger presence in our focus markets.
