Chemical synthesis of solid and viscous products as well as liquids

Many years’ experience in rendering different reaction types pays off

As a contract manufacturer of agrochemicals, fine and speciality chemicals, we can synthesise a wide selection of organic compounds on your behalf and gladly undertake their further technical processing and packaging. 

Thanks to our state-of-the-art multi-purpose synthesis plants, we are able to produce a wide range of reaction types for our customers.
Whether you are a start-up business with no production facilities of your own, or a global player looking for additional production capacity, we offer you an efficient process solution on every level. Starting with the production of test and sample quantities, through to the implementation of large-scale production, we are at your side with competence and commitment.  
Our experienced chemists and process engineers develop favourable reaction pathways for your products and transfer them from the synthesis laboratory via the synthesis pilot plant to the industrial scale of our multi-purpose synthesis plants.

The high quality of your product is ensured by numerous in-process controls as well as our constantly staffed laboratory. 
We work to the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, BS OHSAS 18001:2007 quality and safety standards and have a license to process very toxic, highly flammable, corrosive and CMR substances. In addition, our energy management has been certified according to ISO 50001: 2011
