Evonik, one of the world’s leading specialty chemicals companies, stands for appealing business and innovative strength. We work in a a trustful and performance-oriented corporate culture that is geared to profitable growth and increasing the value of the company. In more than 100 countries, we benefit from our proximity to customers, and our leading market positions. More than 36,000 employees are bound by a claim: No product is so perfect that it couldn’t be made better.

We don’t produce car tires, mattresses, tablets, or animal feed. However, these end products contain Evonik products – like 4,000 others, too. Often, it’s just a small amount that we contribute but that’s exactly what makes the difference. This is how Evonik makes tires more fuel-efficient, mattresses bouncier, tablets more effective, and animal nutrition healthier. That’s specialty chemicals. And we are one of the best in the world.

What we offer

Since 2009 Evonik Industries AG has been certified as a family-friendly company by the German Hertie Foundation.
