Bratislava, Slovakia – Lanxess’ new offices in Bratislava were officially inaugurated on 13 March by Rainier van Roessel, Member of the Board and Labour Relations Director, and German Ambassador to Slovakia, Michael Schmunk.
The firm has been established in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) for almost six years, but since January 2014, Lanxess Central Eastern Europe s.r.o. has been running its business for Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Austria and Hungary from a new CEE headquarters in Bratislava.
Van Roessel underlined the firm’s development in the region: “[This is] a move that clearly demonstrates our commitment. It is our way of saying that we have confidence in the growing economic strength of the region – and in the robust future we envision here for Lanxess.”
The company also has offices in Vienna (Austria), Warsaw (Poland) and Budapest (Hungary).
One of the key areas of operation in the five countries is business with high-performance rubbers and rubber chemicals for the global megatrend of mobility. The company supplies its rubber specialties mainly to national and international tire manufacturers, more and more of whom are expanding their production capacities in central and eastern Europe and increasingly turning to green tires to significantly reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
