Driven by a Vision

WACKER ranks among the pioneers of modern chemistry. From the very beginning, we have been driven by a vision: Giving our customers a competitive edge through innovative top-class performance.

Innovations Targeted at Customers

With an R&D quotient of approximately 3.5 percent relative to sales, we rank among the world’s most research-intensive chemical companies. All new products and processes target the customer’s application, first and foremost. Basic research activities aside, we believe that the new solutions which we devise must always confer an economic benefit on our customers.

Innovative Process Engineering for More Efficiency

We have always invested heavily – in terms of resources and talents – in the development of new products. At the same time, our process engineers continually enhance existing processes to boost their efficiency and economics. A key strength is our integrated production system, which helps us to conserve resources and energy by returning byproducts to the production loop.
