New HQs of LANXESS in Bratislava & Slovakia

Specialty chemicals group LANXESS AG has opened a new distribution company for central and eastern Europe. Since February 15, the manufacturer has been controlling all of its business activities in Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary via LANXESS Central Eastern Europe s.r.o, based in the Slovakian capital Bratislava. The company will also maintain offices in Warsaw, Poland, and Budapest, Hungary.

By opening the new location, LANXESS has taken a major step towards expanding its activities in one of Europe's fastest-growing regions.

“We expect growth in these countries to outstrip that of western Europe in the years ahead, so we've decided to tap this potential for LANXESS by setting up our own company,” explains Rainier van Roessel, member of the LANXESS AG Board of Management.

Bratislava – the ideal location. A crucial factor in the decision to choose Bratislava was its central location for the central and eastern European market. “Bratislava offers us just the right conditions to succeed.

From here, we can control our activities efficiently and effectively throughout the entire region,” says Bjoern-Flemming Bjoernslev, the Managing Director of LANXESS Central Eastern Europe.

LANXESS has recruited some 40 new staff for the fledgling distribution company, around half of whom will be based in Bratislava. The others will work in the branches and the field service. LANXESS previously organized its operations in this region through external distribution agencies.
