Constantly building a better future for generations to come

Almatis operates throughout the world in a safe and responsible manner. We respect the diversity, health and well-being of our employees, contractors, customers and the communities around us.

We anticipate and minimize potential risk to protect our employees, to ensure reliable operations and to satisfy our customers.

Environmental protection is a key component of Almatis's philosophy.

In recent years, we have established our own global standards, such as the Almatis Business System (ABS) and Six Sigma for critical environmental, health and safety issues.

In our daily work we actively seek ways of implementing environmentally sustainable practices in order to reduce emissions, conserve natural resources and eliminate waste. This has resulted in us winning green supplierawards from customers.

All Almatis manufacturing facilities comply with corresponding laws, regulations and other requirements, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001 to ensure high and consistent quality, while protecting the environment as well as our employees and contractors.

First facilities are already certified for the environmental standard ISO 50001.

As a global company and with our ten manufacturing locations, six major sales and supply chain centers and six application & development laboratories, we have the major advantage of being able to serve our customers quickly and effectively, regardless of where they are located.

Our ongoing commitment to sustainable development has resulted in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. To this end, despite us achieving an average annual production increase of 15%, our main manufacturing site has realized an annual reduction in energy consumption of 11%.
