Evonik industries ag


Evonik is one of the world's leading specialty chemicals companies.

Evonik is one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals and active in more than 100 countries around the world. We go far beyond chemistry to create innovative, profitable and sustainable solutions for our customers. We may not manufacture tires, mattresses, medications, or animal feeds, but Evonik is part of all of those products –and many more. While we often contribute only small amounts of material, those contributions are precisely what make the difference. That's because Evonik products make tires fuel-efficient, mattresses more elastic, medications more effective, and animal feeds healthier. That’s what specialty chemicals are all about. And when it comes to specialty chemicals, we're among the best in the world.
