Formerly Yorkshire Imperial Chemicals.

The Yorkshire Dyeworks & Chemical Company was founded in 1900 with a merger of eleven smaller companies and enjoyed a century of unrivalled success. In later years they were unable to compete with the Asian market. Yorkshire Chemicals fell on hard times and went into liquidation in January 2006.
