Laundry chemicals manufacturer Christeyns UK has purchased a further 50% stake to become the sole owner of Warrington food hygiene specialists Klenzan.

With over 25 years’ experience, Klenzan uses innovative chemistry to manufacture, design, install and maintain cleaning solutions across the food, brewing and beverage, dairy and pharmaceutical industries.

Bradford-based Christeyns UK purchased an initial stake in Klenzan in 2012. Christeyns have now purchased the remaining shares in the company from outgoing MD and founder John Bell, who retires in March.

Christeyns CEO Alain Bostoen said Klenzan is a natural addition to the Christeyns group and will strengthen the firms’ current position in the food hygiene market across both the UK and Europe.
