Benefit from the best. The Krefeld-Uerdingen CHEMPARK site has established itself as a leading location for polycarbonates and polyamides in Western Europe. At 260 hectares, it is also the world’s largest production site for inorganic pigments.
One of the Krefeld-Uerdingen site's best-known chemical products is the polycarbonate Makrolon®, one of whose many uses is as a substrate for DVD and CD production. In addition, the roughly 7,000 employees of the various CHEMAPRK tenants manufacture polyurethanes, polyamides, Durethan®, adipic acid and coatings, white and colored pigments and intermediate products for crop protection products, odorants and flavorings. Companies at the site benefit from cutting-edge technical facilities, an excellent infrastructure and a wide range of services.
The CHEMPARK is also one of the largest providers of training in the region. At CHEMPARK Krefeld-Uerdingen, school leavers can choose from a dozen different scientific, technical and commercial training courses. Students and graduates of chemistry and engineering can acquire in-depth specialist knowledge by taking courses at the ultramodern technical training center that involve both training and study. The focus is on combining theory and practice to provide highly qualified new recruits. Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences is also located in Krefeld. The chemical faculty provides one of the most comprehensive choices of specializations in Germany – for both bachelors and masters degrees.
It goes without saying that we combine economic success with responsible care. We optimize our processes with the aim of making them as safe as possible, saving on natural resources and minimizing the impact on the environment. As a result, our tenants’ state-of-the-art production complies with all the legal requirements.
