Evonik Hanse is now part of Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH
Essen, Germany. Founded in 1986 in Geesthacht, Germany, Hanse Chemie GmbH has now been fully integrated into the Evonik Group effective September 1, 2016. After nearly five years as Evonik Hanse GmbH, the site in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein— and its roughly 100 employees—is now part of Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH, one of Evonik’s three operational chemistry segments. The step sets the course for the future of the site.
“The new organization gives us what we need to keep developing the Geesthacht site and to put us into a favorable position going forward,” says Dr. Christian Eger, member of the management team Geesthacht. One aspect of the closer relationship with Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH is the introduction of the Evonik inventory management system, a tool used for modeling the company’s entire flow of goods—from purchasing raw materials to shipping finished products to the customer. The modern system will allow the company to simplify processes and make the site more efficient. “The system is a must if we are to move forward in our efforts to position our products on various markets,” says Dr. Sabine Giessler-Blank, who directs the Polymer & Construction Specialties Product Line within the Interface & Performance Business Line.
