Can you feel it?

We are Kandelium, and are always nearby. You will find our strontium compounds in millions of displays, your water has been cleared of algae and bacteria by our sodium percarbonate, and the bricks in your house may have been treated with our barium carbonate. Now you have the chance to get to know us even better and work with us. We will show you why that’s a good connection to us.

Welcome to Kandelium

Our history began in 1890 as the “Chemische Fabrik Walther Feld”. Today, as Kandelium, we are the market leader for technical quality barium carbonate, strontium carbonate and sodium percarbonate. Around 500 employees in Germany, Mexico and Spain work together to ensure that we, as a technology leader, deliver our products worldwide now and in the future. To keep it that way, we are looking for new, bright minds like you.
