LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY: Saltigo GmbH, subsidiary of Lanxess, is relocating its corporate headquarters from Langenfeld to Leverkusen. The company will move to Lanxess’s headquarters (K 10) at the CHEMPARK site in September 2013. The relocation of Saltigo’s corporate headquarters is part of a series of knock-on moves following the transfer of Lanxess’s headquarters to Cologne. With Saltigo’s relocation to Leverkusen, Lanxess is strengthening its most important location worldwide for the megatrend of agriculture.

The company plans to invest a total of up to €100 million in its business with agricultural active ingredients in Leverkusen through 2015. Saltigo will be spending around one fifth of this amount on creating additional capacities for solids isolation at four facilities.

“The arrival of our fine chemicals specialist Saltigo will strengthen and further expand the Leverkusen site as Lanxess’s most important location worldwide for the megatrend of agriculture. Saltigo’s headquarters needs to offer the best possible conditions to enable the company to continue efficiently steering its growth trajectory. We will create these conditions by having the new main administrative centre in the immediate vicinity of research and production operations,” said Werner Breuers, Member of the Board of Management, Lanxess AG.
