Croda takes on JP Morgan Caz

Global manufacturer of speciality chemicals Croda, which counts Procter & Gamble, Unilever, L’Oreal and Estee Lauder among its customers, yesterday said it had appointed JP Morgan Cazenove as joint broker, alongside Morgan Stanley, with immediate effect. In July it reported a six per cent increase in first-half profit, thanks to increased sales of high margin products and US demand.
