In 2015, over 1,500 employees in Lemförde achieved a turnover of more than 2.2 billion euros.

Our performance materials make life more comfortable and consistently help to save energy. They help to insulate buildings more effectively and to make vehicles lighter. Manufacturers in almost all industrial sectors worldwide use the potential and benefits of our special plastics.

We offer our employees an attractive working environment and excellent conditions, so that they can best bring their knowledge and innovative ideas to success and further develop both professionally and personally.
