At home in the key markets - Wacker Chemie AG

At home in the key markets

WACKER first set foot on the North American continent in 1965 when it established a subsidiary in New York. In 1969, it acquired a stake in Stauffer Chemicals Corporation in Adrian, Michigan, which is now a wholly owned WACKER company.

We now run our entire business in the North America region from here. Over the years, we have added sites in a further eight key regions. In 2016, we ushered in a new era when we commissioned the new polysilicon site in Tennessee. This 2.5-billion investment laid the foundation for our first fully integrated production site in the Americas.
