BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (March 19, 2014) — Lanxess A.G.’s new offices in Bratislava were inaugurated officially on March 13 by Rainier van Roessel, a member of the board and labor relations director, and Michael Schmunk, German ambassador to Slovakia.

The firm has been established in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) for almost six years, but since January 2014, Lanxess Central Eastern Europe s.r.o. has been running its business for Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Austria and Hungary from a new CEE headquarters in Bratislava.

“This is a move that clearly demonstrates our commitment,” Mr. Van Roessel said. “It is our way of saying that we have confidence in the growing economic strength of the region—and in the robust future we envision here for Lanxess.”

The company has offices in Vienna, Austria; Warsaw, Poland; and Budapest, Hungary.

The firm said one of the key areas of operation in the five countries is business with high-performance rubbers and rubber chemicals for the global megatrend of mobility.

The company supplies its rubber specialties mainly to national and international tire manufacturers that are expanding their production capacities in central and eastern Europe and increasingly turning to green tires to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

This report appeared in European Rubber Journal, a UK-based sister publication of Tire Business.
