Frankfurt a. Main is the headquarters of Chemetall. From here all global activities of the surface treatment businesses are coordinated with the regial subsidiaries. Most of Chemetall's Upper Managment and Global Segment Managers are located in the headquarters. Frankfurt is also one of the three global R&D Centers of Excellence, including all central RD activities as well as the laboratory and analytical department. About 300 employees work in Frankfurt.
Langelsheim is the largest and most versatile plant of the Chemetall Group. Today's production spectrum includes chemicals for the surface treatment of metals as well as aircraft sealants. The Langelsheim Industrial Park employs around 700 people, making it one of the most important employers in the region.
History of the plant: In 1920, the Frankfurter Metallgesellschaft (MG) takes over the zinc oxide and lead manufacturer. The so-called "Technical Department" of MG is the predecessor of today's Chemetall. Based on various metal compounds, their chemists and engineers develop a large number of new products and manufacturing processes over the years, which make production in Langelsheim ever larger and more versatile.
Today, production is spread over more than 20 different plants of different sizes. The majority of them require approval under the Federal Emission Control Act and are subject to the Major Accidents Ordinance. According to the current legal situation, the entire plant is therefore subject to the Major Accidents Ordinance, which imposes particularly strict requirements on safety and environmental impact. For example, a comprehensive safety and risk analysis is required. This and the unusual location for a chemical plant on the edge of the Harz Nature Park and directly on the banks of the natural river Innerste mean that environmental protection and occupational safety have a particularly high priority at this location.

Today, Hebro ist represented in nearly all industrialized countries in the world either directly or via the subsidiaries of Chemetall and can thus also comply with the growing demands of its customers who are equally starting activities abroad.
