Australian entrepreneurs in modern chemistry (continued)During the life of the company locally produced chemicals were supplemented with the importation of chemical commodities. In recent years the distribution of dyes and pigments has become a major part of the company's business.
In the early seventies an opportunity developed for the export of Hardman Chemicals zinc chloride production know-how overseas. Consequently in the midseventies, a joint venture company, Hardman Chemical Industries (Pte) Ltd., was established in Singapore. Today it supplies zinc chloride for dry cell battery production for far eastern markets.
