Albright & Wilson (Australia) Limited was a major producer of phosphoric acid, technical and foodgrade phosphates and polyphosphates, as well as a comprehensive range of surfactants, detergent raw materials and concrete additives. These products find application in such industry groups as personal care, detergents, food processing, metal finishing, paper, shampoos, mining and mineral processing, pharmaceuticals, crop care, building and water treatment.
Albright & Wilson (Australia) Limited has two operational sites in Australia: the Phosphates range of products is manufactured at Yarraville (Victoria) and the Surfactants range at Wetherill Park (NSW). Sales, marketing and local warehousing facilities are situated in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. Albright & Wilson New Zealand Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary, operates as a trading office from Auckland and provides warehousing facilities in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Albright & Wilson (Australia) Limited was established in 1939 and the manufacture of phosphates commenced at Yarraville the following year. The manufacture of surfactants commenced at Yarraville in 1958 but was transferred to Box Hill in 1966. Following the 1997 purchase of land at Wetherill Park, manufacture of surfactants commenced in Sydney and by 1989, all surfactant production had relocated to Wetherill Park.
For over 50 years, the major shareholder was Albright & Wilson Limited (UK), with the balance of shares being held by Imperial Chemical Industries of Australia & New Zealand Limited. Following ICI’s divestment of its shares in 1990, the shareholding changed several times and since 2003, the company has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of PT Unggul Indah Cahaya Tbk, headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia.
