The Fine Chemicals Platform of International Chemicals Investors (ICIG), WeylChem Group, offers Custom Manufacturing services as well as Advanced Intermediates & Reagents. WeylChem’s manufacturing sites are located in Germany (Frankfurt & Brunsbüttel), in the US (Elgin), in France (Thann) and  in Italy (Trissino).

Chlorinations are offered on multiple sites, Miteni in Trissino is a leading company in Fluorination Chemistry and PPC in Thann is a leading company in Bromination Chemistry.

Beginning in 2011 WeylChem International (WCI), located in Frankfurt, Germany was formed to offer the platform’s technologies from a single entity, particularly for Custom and Toll Manufacturing under the brand name WeylChem. The new company will also focus on supply chain optimization between the ICIG fine chemicals businesses. WeylChem’s Advanced Intermediates & Reagents continue to be handled by the local legal entities and will benefit from the larger commercial network provided by the new international organization.

Dr. Andreas Maier and Dr. Joachim Hackenbruch have been appointed as Managing Directors of WCI. Paul Vierendeels, Dr. Andrea Missio and Bryon Leggett will join the new entity as Directors Business Development.

We wish this new company ongoing success and are confident that it will add substantial value to our services and the products of our customers.
