Wacker Chemie AG, Cologne Plant
VAE dispersions from the Rhine metropolis
Our Cologne plant was founded in 1960 as a facility for producing acetylaldehyde from ethylene. Located at the Cologne-Merkenich Chemical Industry Park, today the plant manufactures VAE dispersions for the adhesive, coatings, paint and nonwoven industries.
A decisive factor in selecting this site was its proximity to the River Rhine and to Cologne’s port, allowing key raw materials to be delivered without a problem.
