British Dyestuffs Corporation Ltd was a British company formed in 1919 from the merger of British Dyes Ltd with Levinstein Ltd.[1] The British Government was the company's largest shareholder, and had two directors on the board.

The company had manufacturing sites at Dalton, Huddersfield and Blackley, Manchester.

BDC supplied a comprehensive range of dyes within a competitive market. Its most notable foreign competitors were Du Pont and IG Farben.

It became one of the four British chemical companies which merged in 1926 with Brunner Mond, Nobel Explosives and United Alkali Company to form Imperial Chemical Industries.
