March 25, 2020

ABS Group's Warrington, UK division recently became a member of the Chemical Industries Association (CIA) and subsidiary company Chemicals Northwest (CNW). The chemical industry is one of the largest exporting sectors for the UK, and ABS Group aims to build on its existing presence in the region as a specialist service provider.

"Becoming members of these recognized organizations will enable us to better assist chemical and pharmaceutical companies at the local and national levels to operate safely and reliably, and continuously improve and maintain compliance with local regulations," says Brad Eccles, ABS Group Director of Operations based in Warrington.

CIA is an organization that works with its members, policy makers and stakeholders to address critical issues facing the chemical industry, including environmental, security, health and safety.
