Adchem employs over 50 people at the Burra production facility. A small commercial team is located at the Melbourne Head Office of Adchem’s parent company, Ausminco Pty Ltd. The manufacturing facility at Burra has been producing copper chemicals since 1970, and the majority of output is exported to customers in over 20 countries. Adchem’s products are used as inputs in a wide range of industrial (wood preservation, automotive, electronic, catalyst, metal treatment, surface coatings) and agricultural (trace element in both animal feed and fertilisers) applications.
