LANXESS AG has successfully completed the move of its Group headquarters from Leverkusen to Cologne. With its approximately 1,000 employees, it now occupies the LANXESS Tower at Kennedyplatz  in the district of Deutz.

The specialty chemicals company will now manage its global business from Cologne. The new Group headquarters unites all of the company’s central management functions under one roof for the first time.

“The move has made us more efficient,” said Axel C. Heitmann, Chairman of the Board of Management of LANXESS AG, at the official inauguration ceremony, Tuesday, September 3. “Particularly against the backdrop of our current situation, the concentration of our forces in the LANXESS Tower is incredibly important. We intend to carry on with our success story and the new headquarters will certainly play its part.”

He pointed out that with its location in the flourishing economic and media hotbed of Cologne, the LANXESS Tower provides everything LANXESS needs to conduct its global business. “Not only is the building equipped with modern technology, it also represents sustainable and responsible architecture,” said Heitmann.

He added that Cologne also has an infrastructure unique in North Rhine-Westphalia with excellent transport connections. Furthermore, the city is a renowned academic and research center, making it a magnet for top talent. “We are very comfortable here. The new site and the LANXESS Tower will have a positive effect on our corporate culture.”

Garrelt Duin, Minister of Economics, Energy, Industry and Commerce in the North Rhine-Westphalia regional government, takes a positive view of the move of the LANXESS Group headquarters.

“As minister for economic affairs, and having a particular interest in chemistry, I am very pleased that LANXESS chose Cologne. It underscores how strong North Rhine-Westphalia is as an industrial location and how successful the company has become since it was founded not even a decade ago. It is now a leading player in the European chemicals industry.”

Cologne’s Mayor Jürgen Roters also believes the specialty chemicals company’s move is a significant boost for the city. “I am pleased to be able to welcome LANXESS AG with its corporate headquarters and approximately 1,000 employees to Cologne. This relocation is an impressive acknowledgment of Cologne’s credentials as an industrial location.

"I am very proud and see this decision as proof of the city’s ability to attract global players. The LANXESS Tower is an important landmark that is a positive addition to our city landscape. I firmly believe that the employees will find Cologne to be a great city to live and work in. Welcome to Cologne, LANXESS!”
