Our ambition is to build a new model of sustainable chemistry to help answer some of society’s challenges.

We are convinced that “asking more from chemistry” will enable us to use the resources we need in our business as sparingly as possible in order to create sustainable solutions that hold potential for future generations.

We are transforming into a multi-specialty chemical solutions-provider. We are developing new innovative products and solutions in close partnership with our customers, including some of the world’s leading players in the aeronautics, automotive, electronics, and consumer goods sectors.

Through our specialized technological expertise and industrial know-how, leveraging our unique ways of doing business based on a framework of core principles and ethics, we create value for our stakeholders at economic, social, and environmental levels. Only by ensuring the sustainability of the value we create can we truly satisfy our ambition of securing more future for our people,
our businesses, the planet, and society at large.
