Croda's Headquarters, Cowick Hall, Yorkshire, UK

United Kingdom

Our global headquarters at Cowick Hall in Yorkshire is a few miles from our original site at Rawcliffe Bridge, which is still one of our four UK manufacturing sites. Our Hull manufacturing site is one of our largest sites and includes an onsite wind turbine, and we also have manufacturing sites in Leek and Ditton.

We operate a range of specialist laboratories in the UK. These include Techspace One in Daresbury, one of five Croda laboratories specialising in biotechnology, and our Centre of Innovation for Formulation Science at the University of Liverpool’s Materials Innovation Factory (MIF). Our biostimulant experts, Plant Impact, also have their main R&D in the UK.

The UK is home to one of our major distribution centres and European finance centre. Our success as a business depends on our people forging strong networks, which is supported locally and globally through multi-site collaborative projects, participation in Croda 1% Club local community activities and social events.
