Grangemouth Manufacturing Centre is one of our two award winning manufacturing sites in the UK, which produces products that are sold worldwide.
Grangemouth Manufacturing Centre was founded in 1919. We currently have four active ingredient (AI) manufacturing plants and one formulation and fill and pack plant. All have been commissioned in the last 13 years with the most recent opening in May 2010. We employ over 350 people in various roles including manufacturing, engineering, scientific and support. This enables us to continually meet the global demand for our products and help growers protect their crops and increase their yield.
Syngenta’s biggest selling product, the fungicide Amistar®, is manufactured on Site with three of our AI plants dedicated to its production. We formulate, fill and pack Amistar® for sales in over 100 countries.
The AI for Syngenta’s new blockbuster herbicide Axial® is also manufactured on Site, and we formulate the fungicides Cherokee®, Revus® and Bravo®, also for worldwide export.
Syngenta Grangemouth is active in the local community. It supports the Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre, a demonstration site to show how urban green spaces can be created from wasteland, and how green amenity areas, including gardens, can be managed to meet both human and wildlife needs.

In 2008 the site won the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Resource Efficiency at the Scottish Council for Development & Industry (SCDI) Awards for Exports & Enterprise. A focus on reducing energy usage and waste production has yielded savings of over £375,000 at the site, despite it doubling production over the last 5 years.
