A hotbed of innovation
Home base in Leverkusen
The heart of Covestro beats in Leverkusen: it is where the company's headquarters are located and where it conducts research and handles production. Covestro's success story kicked off in 1937 with the discovery of the plastic polyurethane. Today, the company operates worldwide but maintains its home base in Leverkusen.
Around 3,850 employees work for Covestro in Leverkusen in administration, research and production. They ensure safe, environmentally friendly and highly efficient operation with outstanding commitment and broad expertise. New technologies and processes are used in the large production facilities at the site. These help make processes even more efficient.
At the same time, Covestro's innovations set new standards for sustainability – even beyond the company's own boundaries. Since 2015, Covestro has invested around 550 million euros in its plants in order to further ensure that Leverkusen remains a successful production site long-term.
