A recently-published report by Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC) reveals that two Oak Brook firms, CBI Industries and Nalco Chemical Corporation, are among 31 Illinois firms doing business in South Africa. CALC spokesman Rev. Martin Deppe, pastor of Hinsdale United Methodist Church, reported that the study revealed that the quarter-billion dollars of investments by Illinois-based firms account for one-tenth of U.S. business in South Africa. CBI contracts for construction at SASOL, South Africa's coal-to-oil conversion complex, and Nalco's South Africa affiliate produces water treatment chemicals for heavy industry.
