Wacker Chemie AG, Cologne Plant

Cologne, Germany

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.
