Open House

Seeing chemistry in a new light

Researching, experimenting, developing, producing – all in a day’s business for the chemical industry Everyone of us uses products that are stuffed full with complicated chemistry that we can’t see: from smartphones, cars and LEDs through to toothpaste, paints and cleaning agents. You only get a chance to see these accomplishments by the sector every three to four years on National Open House day. Over 200 chemical and pharmaceutical companies and third-level institutions throw open their doors on this day and invite the general public in to have a look around – WACKER too.

At the 2018 Open House in Burghausen, some 20,000 citizens and employees, along with their families, came to explore our plant, where they were met with an array of interesting tours and exciting experiments. When the day was over, everyone agreed that the chemical sector is not only fascinating and inspiring, but also offers great and highly attractive employment opportunities for the future.
