Investing in the future

We continuously invest in the expansion and modernisation of our production site. This enables us to meet the increasing demands of our customers and to sustainably develop the production site with efficient technologies. In recent years, we have already carried out a wide range of investment projects: For example, in 2012 we increased the production capacities for our Pentane product range, and in 2016 we invested in the expansion of a new loading and mixing station. In addition to investments for product developments and customer requirements, we are also pushing ahead with targeted sustainability projects. For example, the construction of a new energy generation plant based on natural gas in 2014 or the switch to green electricity in 2021.  

With modern technologies, a focus on future trends and investments in sustainability, we are strengthening our market position - and our location - in the long term.
