Our Hamburg site manufactures additives for cooling and industrial lubricants, including corrosion inhibitors for metal processing fluids and products for the treatment of metal surfaces. Our products are used in the production of vehicles and everyday metal objects (e.g. beverage cans, screws, ball bearings). Using our products in machine tools and steel presses improves the effectiveness of the lubricants and extends the life of the tools. The products manufactured at this site can be found all over the world.

Sales and Customer Relationships

Our sales team also offers additives for other applications, including motor oils, fuels and lubricants for hydraulic propulsion systems and turbines. These products are manufactured at other sites and sold from Hamburg to customers within Germany and in Northern and Eastern Europe. A small team is engaged in establishing requirements for future products, working closely with manufacturers of the vehicles and transmissions in which our additives will eventually be used.

Community Relations

We strive to create and maintain a good relationship with our neighbors and with our surroundings. We maintain close contacts with the responsible authorities (employment protection office, environmental office, professional association) and the fire department, and we invest time and resources in contacts with local schools and universities.

Health and Safety

Health and safety are a top priority for us. We operate in accordance with all applicable environmental, health and safety regulations and conduct routine health and safety training for all employees. Our internal company policies frequently go far beyond the scope of minimum statutory requirements.
