The che­mi­cal indu­s­try in Ger­many is one of the nation’s most important and lar­gest indu­s­tries, and Ger­many is one of the most sig­ni­fi­cant loca­ti­ons for the che­mi­cal indu­s­try in the world. Regard­less of whe­ther they’re DAX-lis­ted cor­po­ra­ti­ons or family/owner-ope­ra­ted firms, many Ger­man che­mi­cal com­pa­nies do busi­ness inter­na­tio­nally and are even inter­na­tio­nal lea­ders. The array of pro­ducts is immense and ran­ges from the mass pro­duc­tion of cer­tain raw mate­rials to the manu­fac­ture of spe­ci­alty che­mi­cals in tiny amo­unts.

Ger­man che­mi­cal com­pa­nies do busi­ness in a com­plex eco­no­mic and legal environ­ment. Inc­rea­sing glo­ba­liza­tion con­fronts them with for­mi­da­ble chal­len­ges. Most of their busi­ness is con­duc­ted in for­eign mar­kets, where they have to adjust to local con­di­ti­ons and work with for­eign part­ners. At the same time, com­pe­ti­tion is con­ti­nually inc­rea­sing in domestic mar­kets because of for­eign com­pe­ti­tors. A com­pany’s main con­cern in an environ­ment like this is to defend and streng­t­hen its mar­ket posi­tion by methods such as crea­ting new pro­ducts, impro­ving effi­ci­ency, cut­ting costs or tap­ping new mar­kets in for­eign coun­tries. These acti­vi­ties bring che­mi­cal com­pa­nies under a variety of natio­nal and espe­cially also Euro­pean legal regu­la­ti­ons regar­ding issues of taxes, secu­rity, the aut­ho­riza­tion of pro­ducts, indu­s­trial pro­perty rights, pub­lic claims, etc.

Regard­less of your field of busi­ness – whe­ther the manu­fac­ture of orga­nic or inor­ga­nic raw mate­rials, fine or spe­ci­alty che­mi­cals, phar­maceuti­cals, syn­thetics, clea­nings sup­p­lies, or toi­le­tries – we will be there to assist you, while our exten­sive inter­na­tio­nal net­work can help you deal with any issues that may arise.
