Langelsheim is the largest and most diverse production location operated by the Chemetall Group. Today's production range covers chemicals for the surfact treatment of metals, inorganic and organic lithium compounds and lithium metal, aircraft sealants as well as high-purity metals and metal compounds of the elements caesium, barium, titanium and zirkonium. The Langelsheim industrial park has a workforce of around 700 employees which makes it one of the most important employers in the region. History of the plant: In 1920, Frankfurt-based Metallgesellschaft (MG) acquired the producer of zinc-oxide and lead. The so-called "Technical Department" of MG is the precursor of today's Chemetall. Based on various metal compounds, its chemists and engineers over the years developed a multitude of new products and production processes which prompted the continuous growth of the product portfolio and production facilities in Langelsheim. Production is distributed across 20 different plants of various sizes. The majority of these plants require an operating permit according to the BImschG (Federal Immission Control Act) and are bound by the Hazardous Incident Ordinance. According to current legislation, this means that the complete production site is subject to the said regulation which specifies particularly stringent requirements regarding safety and environmental impact. This includes a comprehensive safety and risk analysis, for example. This and the fact that the production site is located next to the Harz natural wildlife park and directly on the banks of the river Innerste, which was left in its natural condition, results in a situation where environmental protection and occupational safety have become top priorities for this location.
