OMEX, which develops, manufactures and supplies liquid suspension, solution and speciality plant nutrient fertilisers, a range of products for biogas plants, is celebrating its 45th anniversary.
The organisation started supplying UK growers with suspension fertiliser from its site at Bardney, Lincolnshire in 1976. In response to product demand throughout East Anglia and the eastern seaboard, a second manufacturing facility was built in Kings Lynn, Norfolk in 1984. By 1990 OMEX was supplying more than 100,000 tonnes of bespoke liquid fertiliser to the UK market.
It has now become the country’s largest manufacturer of liquid fertilisers and operates in more than 85 countries with offices globally.
The increased demand for liquid fertiliser in the UK over the past decade, has seen OMEX significantly increase its own liquid fertiliser storage and distribution capacity with the purchase of its site at the Port of Ipswich in 2011 and then at the Port of Dundee in 2018.
