ICL was established in 1968 as a company owned by the Israeli government, and privatized in a process which began in 1992.
Approximately 70% of ICL shares are held directly and indirectly by the public. ICL operates via three segments: ICL Fertilizers, ICL Industrial Products and ICL Performance Products, each of which is structured as an administrative rather than a legal entity.
ICL’s CEO is responsible for overall management of the ICL Group, and is assisted by an executive staff that includes the CEOs of ICL Fertilizers and ICL Industrial Products.
ICL’s headquarters is located in Tel-Aviv. ICL’s strategy for reinforcing its market position includes expanding its global distribution while also adding products and services that are synergetic with its operations through joint ventures and acquisitions of companies in adjacent sectors.
