Two Innovation Centers Dedicated by Croda Inc

December 8, 2008

Innovation is the cornerstone of every successful supplier to the global personal care and household products industry. That Croda recently dedicated not one, but two innovation centers at its Atlas Point site in Delaware, speaks volumes about the company’s commitment to developing novel solutions for the industries it serves.

One of the centers, The William C. Griffin Innovation Center, honors William Griffin, a longtime employee at the site and the inventor of the Hydrophile-Lipophile Balance (HLB) System. Mr. Griffin developed the system while working for Atlas Powder Company (now a part of Croda), which was located at Atlas Point. Mr. Griffin, 94, began his career with Atlas Powder Company in 1936. By the time he retired in 1979, he had more than 36 patents to his credit, and developed several key ingredients for the industry.

“Today is a special day in the history of Croda North America. It allows us to look back to the past to the history of this great facility and the future,” observed Kevin Gallagher, president of Croda Inc.
