Encompassing a space of 5,700 square meters, the new laboratory building of ACTEGA Rhenania will be twice as large as the site’s two current labs combined.

Research and development, quality control and service will be united here under one roof. “So far, these laboratories have been housed in separate buildings,” says Dr. Thomas Sawitowski, the managing director of ACTEGA Rhenania. “By bringing together these departments in one building we are optimizing our processes and thus can support our customers even more efficiently with new developments.”


ACTEGA develops and produces specialty coatings, inks, adhesives and sealing compounds with a focus on the packaging, printing and medical industry. Products by ACTEGA offer high-value visual appearance to materials such as metal, paper, board or plastics.


ALTANA group comprises the holding company ALTANA AG and four operating divisions: BYK Additives & Instruments, ECKART Effect Pigments, ELANTAS Electrical Insulation, and ACTEGA Coatings & Sealants. It has currently 49 operational companies and 50 application and research laboratories worldwide.
