SWS was incorporated in the early 1980s, before being acquired by chemical firm Tradebe in 2014.

The deal co-incides with significant expansion for Leading Solvents,  as it has leased an additional 16,000 sq ft of space at Marston Moor Business Park. The company also relocated its automotive distributor, BIG supplies, from Warrington to the Tockwith site earlier in the year.
