Engelhard operated the Minerals & Chemicals Division and Industries Division with corporate headquarters in Menlo Park, New Jersey. In 1984, the company was realigned to consist of a Specialty Chemicals Division and a Specialty Metals Division. Engelhard expanded significantly through growth, acquisitions and joint ventures. Acquisitions included the Freeport Kaolin Company in 1985; most of the business of the Harshaw/Filtrol Partnership in 1988; the auto catalysts and petroleum catalysts businesses of Solvay Catalysts GmbH, in 1992 and 1994, respectively; the Mearl Corporation in 1996; the catalyst business of Mallinckrodt Inc. in 1998; Süd Chemie’s fats and oils catalyst business in 2001; and the Collaborative Group, a personal care company, in 2004.
For Engelhard executives to respond quickly to changes in the rapidly evolving mergers and manufacturing market, and make timely business decisions about the type and amount of
metal to manufacture, it needed access to reliable, up-to-date manufacturing and financial information, such as raw material supply and inventory data.
