Ineos launches global healthcare division after success of County Durham plant

Chemicals giant Ineos is launching a new global healthcare business after successfully producing millions of bottles of hand sanitisers for the NHS at the height of the virus crisis.

Ineos Hygienics will produce a range of hospital grade hand gels, sanitiser sprays for hands and surfaces and sanitiser wipes, for sale to the public.

It will be headquartered in the UK and operate manufacturing plants at Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, Herne in Germany, Etain in France and at Jacksonville and Neville Island in the US.

George Ratcliffe, son of Ineos boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe, will be chief operating officer, after overseeing production of hand sanitisers in recent months.

He told the PA news agency there was clearly a shortage of the product across the world, and he believes demand will continue.
