The CBA has grown to be the voice of the UK chemical supply chain where it has provided unswerving dedication and consistent support throughout the years. It represents distributors, manufacturers, traders, warehouse operators, logistics and transport companies in the chemical supply chain, many of whom are SMEs and who are the main industry interface providing products and services to thousands of UK downstream chemical users.

One of the chief roles of the CBA is to lobby on behalf of members. This is something it does at the highest levels and over the years, industry has benefitted significantly from the CBA’s interventions. 

Bookings for the Annual ‘Floggers’ Lunch are now being taken.
