We are growing

LANXESS has acquired many biocide suppliers within the last years. Since 2020, IPEL in Brazil completes our production network in South America. The acquisition of Intace strengthened our position in specialty paper and packing market since 2021 and the recent IFF Microbial Control acquisition even boosted our global position as one of the leading biocide suppliers worldwide.
