Nov 15 (Reuters) - Chemicals maker Ineos Enterprises said on Thursday it will buy Ashland Global Holdings Inc's composites unit for $1.1 billion, chiefly for its resin business.
Ashland said the divestiture was a part of its plans to focus on specialty chemicals.
Ineos said the deal was expected to be completed in the first half of next year. (bit.ly/2B9uUjs)
