Bayer UK/Ireland employs over 1000 people across our three main operating companies - Bayer Plc, Bayer CropScience Ltd and Bayer Ltd in Ireland.
Bayer has been trading in the UK/Ireland region since 1871. Early business was handled through the offices of engineering company JM Steel, then through Bayer's own operations, based in Manchester, then Surrey and Newbury and now Reading, Berkshire.
