History of the Company
Exports of phosphate mined by the Compagnie Sénégalaise des Phosphates de Taïba (CSPT) began in 1960. But only in 1984, with the startup of the first Phosphoric Acid manufacturing unit at Industries Chimiques du Sénégal (ICS), did a growing part of the ore begin to be processed locally.
In 1996, the ICS Group, born of the ICS-CSPT merger-takeover, completed its vertical integration of the production and marketing chain, following the example of ICS's competitors around the world. This integrated production scheme, that ranged from mining the ore to processing it to make phosphate fertilizer, ensured the company considerable flexibility in its production and sales policies.
