We are a leading specialty chemicals group with a focuson premium products. As a technology leader, we retain productleadership positions in our businesses.
At LANXESS, many forces combine to produce the optimal results. In 29 countries worldwide. This applies both to the processes and solutions themselves as well as to the more than 16,700 staff who are responsible for the company’s day-to-day business. Our objectives and goals are anchored in our name, LANXESS, which is a compound of the French word “lancer,” meaning “to set in motion,” and the English word “success”– indicating our determination and commitment to long-term success and renewal.
Our product portfolio is focused on polymers, intermediates and specialty chemicals. Within these key fields of industrial chemistry, we deploy our specific core competences: chemical expertise, applications expertise, flexible asset management and close cooperation with our customers.
Our worldwide business operations are built on tradition and experience dating back to 1863. Spun off from the Bayer Group’s chemicals and polymers division, we were publicly listed as an independent company on January 31, 2005 – and already in 2012, we were listed on the German benchmark index DAX 30 as one of the largest and most frequently traded companies in Germany. The transfer of the company’s global headquarters from Leverkusen to the ultra-modern LANXESS Tower in Cologne is a further milestone in the very special success story of our company.
As a still relatively young global player, we enjoy a unique and prominent position within our industry: with fresh ideas yet full of experience, at home in Germany but present worldwide. Regardless of where we do business, we are a leading provider of premium solutions. This means that we not only supply our clients with cutting-edge products, but also actively support their innovation processes.
Over the past few years, we have continually increased the resources we allocate to innovation. Moreover, we have created a dedicated team that coordinates all of our research and development activities and manages projects that span multiple business areas.
