The target was to establish the inorganic chemical centre of the Great Plain.  The investment was started by building of a sulphuric acid plant. It was followed by the fertiliser factory, the inorganic pigment plant, the washing powder plant, the cryolite plant and last but not least the phosphoric acid and sodium tripolyphosphate plant.
1989 - Privatisation Process: washing powder plant was acquired by Henkel Austria
1992 - pigment plant became the property of the firm Holland Colours/Appeldorn
1993 - The state-owned company was transformed into a joint-stock company.

General

The sulphuric acid plant - as the only sulphuric acid factory in Hungary - works on the basis of liquid elemental sulphur. Its production capacity is 150 000 tons/year. The produced sulphuric acid and oleum can be used in several sectors of the industry. The inorganic chemical, the metallurgical and the food industries require the largest amounts. The pharmaceutical and intermediary producers are also important customers.The firm Tiszamenti Vegyiművek Rt. was established in 1951 by the state. The target was to establish the inorganic chemical centre of the Great Plain.  The investment was started by building of a sulphuric acid plant. It was followed by the fertiliser factory, the inorganic pigment plant, the washing powder plant, the cryolite plant and last but not least the phosphoric acid and sodium tripolyphosphate plant.  After the social and political changes in 1989, as part of the privatisation procedure the washing powder plant was acquired by Henkel Austria and the pigment plant became the property of the firm Holland Colours/Apeldoorn in 1992. The state-owned company was transformed into a joint-stock company in 1993.  The company Tiszamenti Vegyiművek Rt. was privatised by the company Bige Holding Trading and Production Ltd. in 1997.  In 2004 Tiszamenti Vegyiművek Rt. has merged into the company Bige Holding Ltd., since then it is doing the producing and trading activity under this name.

News
August 7, 2019 - Production at Bige Holdingʼs cryolite plant in Szolnok (east-central Hungary) has restarted after the Budapest Municipal Court upheld a ruling against a resolution by disaster protection authorities that earlier shut down the plant.  The local disaster protection authority earlier suspended production at Bige Holdingʼs cryolite and sulfuric acid plants, state news agency MTI recalled. However, production at its artificial fertilizer plant was not suspended, after the Administrative and Labor Court of Debrecen overruled the decision to suspend its operating license.The Budapest Municipal Court said on Tuesday that environmental or safety risks at the Bige Holding cryolite plant could not be established on the basis of the disaster protection authorityʼs resolution or the content of public administration documents. The plantʼs closure could cause significant material losses, putting both the owner and the plantʼs staff at a serious disadvantage, it added.Production at the cryolite plant, which employs about 250 people, was suspended in June. The court has still not decided "on the matter of the suspension of dangerous activity at the sulfuric acid factory," thus the suspension there remains in place.Bige Holding sells output of its synthetic cryolite plant to aluminum smelters and other metallurgical industries, as well as to makers of abrasive materials, ceramics, glass, welding materials, and pesticides. Capacity of the plant is 8,000 tonnes a year.Bige Holdingʼs sulfuric acid plant has capacity to turn out 150,000 tonnes of product a year. The chemical is sold to metallurgical, food and pharmaceutical companies.
