A decentralized corporate structure: Our specialty chemicals operations are divided into three chemical manufacturing segments, which operate close to their markets and customers and have a high degree of entrepreneurial independence. 


In the Nutrition & Care division, everything revolves around human well-being – around health and the quality of life. All products are used directly on, or in humans or animals. They are functional actives, not simply materials. This is what characterizes our three business lines: Health Care, Care Solutions and Animal Nutrition.


The Specialty Additives division combines the businesses of versatile additives and high-performance crosslinkers. Small amount - big effect: In keeping with this principle, our specialties make the difference. They make our clients' products more valuable, more durable, save more energy and in many respects, simply better.


The Smart Materials division includes businesses with innovative materials that enable resource-saving solutions and replace conventional materials. The products are continuously developed and adapted to the needs of the customers. They are the smart answer to the major challenges of our time: environment, urbanization, energy efficiency, mobility and health.


Our Performance Materials division brings together businesses with the same DNA. What belongs together, has come together. This is what we will build on:
Long-term customer relationships based on high quality, efficiency and reliability. Lean structures paired with continuous process optimization. Focus on resource-saving production, new applications and specialties.


Concentrated know-how revolving around chemical production. As a driver of innovation and digitization in the production environment, the Technology & Infrastructure division offers a full range of expertise revolving around chemical production.
