About Us

Oxywax was formed in Billingham in 1991 as a specialist producer of additives made from oxidate (A substance formed from the liquid phase oxidation of refined hydrocarbon waxes).

These additives were originally developed on Teesside by Carless Chemicals in the 1970’s, were further developed by Exxon in the 1980’s and in 1991 were acquired and refined by Oxywax Ltd.

Fulbeck Limited, based in Newton Aycliffe in County Durham, purchased Oxywax and the range of Hypax products in 2009. (The Hypax products had been manufactured for over 25 years in Newton Aycliffe under a toll manufacturing agreement).
