With around 79,000 square meters (excluding ALTANA), Wesel is one of the largest locations of BYK. The foundation stone for a highly successful company was laid here in 1962.
Currently, around 1,200 employees and 45 trainees work in laboratories, administration, and production (including ALTANA) at the Wesel site. The global IT of the ALTANA Group is also based in Wesel. In our state-of-the-art production, more than 500 individual products are currently manufactured in three-shift operation, tested, made ready for shipment, and transported to the finished goods warehouse in Emmelsum.
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.
