On 14 June, the 2018 National Chemical Industry Award winners were announced at a celebration dinner in Newcastle.

The event was opened by the Chief Executive of the Chemical Industries Association, Steve Elliott. He said “the industry was a massive contributor to the UK economy and a better way of life – 1 in 3 cars are fitted with a Johnson Matthey autocatalyst, wind turbine gearboxes benefit from the energy efficient oils produced by INEOS and the recently announced GSK investment will see the UK continue to be the centre of vital drugs and medicine research and manufacturing to combat asthma and respiratory disease. We, you, are the industry of industries”.
