At around 79,000 square meters (excluding ALTANA), the location in Wesel is one of the largest of BYK. In 1962, the foundation stone for a highly successful company was laid here.
Currently, approx. 1,100 people work here in laboratories, administration, and production (including ALTANA). The ALTANA Group's global IT division is also based here. In our highly modern production facility, 520 individual products are currently manufactured, tested, prepared for shipment, and transported to the finished goods warehouse in Emmelsum in a three-shift operation.
All machines and procedures that we use at BYK for production and warehousing are state of the art. With support from independent, external experts, our plants are regularly tested and checked by the authorities. We have also joined the international “Responsible Care” program. This program represents the desire to constantly improve conditions to protect health and the environment, as well as conditions for the safety of employees and neighbors – regardless of legal requirements.
