About The General Chemical Group Inc.

The General Chemical Group, Inc. operates as a producer of soda ash and calcium chloride in North America. The Company's soda ash is used in the manufacture of glass, sodium-based chemicals (such as baking soda), detergents, paper, textiles, food and many other familiar consumer products. The Company's calcium chloride is used primarily by highway and road maintenance organizations for dust control and roadbed stabilization during the summer and for de-icing roads and sidewalks during the winter.

The Company produces natural soda ash from trona ore, the raw material precursor of soda ash, at its Green River, Wyoming facility, where it has access to the largest and most economically recoverable trona ore deposits in the world. The Company operates its Green River facility through General Chemical (Soda Ash) Partners (GCSAP), a partnership with subsidiaries of ACI International Limited and TOSOH Corporation.

The Soda Ash and Calcium Chloride Businesses

Soda Ash

Soda ash is used in the manufacture of glass, sodium-based chemicals, detergents, paper and other consumer products. It is also used in water treatment, pulp and paper and other industrial end-use applications. Approximately one-half of global soda ash demand is attributable to glass production. The glass production market is comprised of manufacturers of bottles and other containers, commercial, residential and automobile windows, mirrors, fiberglass, television tubes, lighting ware, tableware, glassware and laboratory ware.

The Company, along with the other five U.S. producers of natural soda ash, is a member of ANSAC, a soda ash export cooperative organized in 1984 under an exemption from U.S. antitrust laws provided under the Webb-Pommerene Act. Through this cooperative, all six U.S. producers export soda ash to all parts of the world except Canada and the members of the European Union, where U.S. producers export soda ash directly. The primary export markets served by ANSAC are Asia and Latin America and, to a lesser extent, the Middle East, Africa and Eastern Europe.

Calcium Chloride

The primary uses for the Company's calcium chloride--road maintenance and ice removal--are seasonal and weather dependent. During the summer, the Company's calcium chloride is used in liquid form on unpaved roads for dust control and roadbed stabilization. During the winter, the Company's calcium chloride is used in flake and liquid form for ice removal. The Company primarily markets its calcium chloride to highway and road maintenance organizations, as well as other industrial and governmental users. The Company also markets a range of calcium chloride-based products for sidewalk and driveway de-icing applications through retail home improvement centers.

Competition

Soda Ash

The Company competes with both international and North American soda ash producers. The international soda ash producers include Brunner Mond plc, Penrice Soda Ash Products Pty Ltd., Solvay S.A. and various Eastern European and Asian producers.

Calcium Chloride

The Company is the largest producer of calcium chloride in Canada. The Company's major competitors are The Dow Chemical Company (Dow Chemical), TETRA Technologies, Inc. (TETRA), and various local producers in Canada and the United States.

History

The General Chemical Group, Inc. was founded in 1899.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.


PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.


Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
