Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, announced that it has signed a long-term supply contract with OMV. From 2015, the Austrian oil and Gas Company will supply Clariant’s site in Gendorf (Germany) with ethylene. This agreement will enable Clariant to source most of its requirements for this important basic chemical in southern Bavaria.

The Clariant plant in Gendorf is part of the Industrial & Consumer Specialties (ICS) Business Unit and, with around 700 employees, is the Business Unit’s largest production site. The specialty chemicals company produces on the site ethylene oxide, for which ethylene is a major raw material. Ethylene oxide is used to manufacture well over 500 different products on the site for use in Crop Care, Home Care, and Personal Care, and in industrial applications such as lubricants or construction chemicals.

Over the last years, the Gendorf site has been constantly expanded within the defined BU ICS global strategy. As well as increasing production capacities, particular emphasis has also been placed on expanding the product range and raising the already very high quality standard. As part of the BU ICS global quality initiative, the Gendorf site is not only ISO 9001- and ISO 14001-certified but has also recently obtained cosmetics GMP ISO 22716 certification.
