A pioneer with tradition
High-tech made in Krefeld-Uerdingen
Innovative since day one: This is the best way to describe the Krefeld-Uerdingen site. It is the oldest of the company's three sites in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) and at the same time the birthplace of some of the most important products and production processes in the plastics industry. The high-tech plastic Makrolon® was discovered here in the 1950s. Even today, the site continues to set new standards.
Around 1,100 employees work in Krefeld-Uerdingen every day. The majority of them work in production. Their tireless effort is one reason for the company's ongoing success. Covestro manufactures a variety of raw materials for industrial applications and everyday objects at a total of nine production plants. From smartphones to cars to refrigerators: they all carry a piece of “Krefeld-Uerdingen” inside of them.
