We operate two strategically located state-of-the-art production facilities and one refining plant that provides us with top-quality raw materials. Our corporate headquarters is in Hannover. We also maintain a research and development center on-site in Bad Hönningen, Germany. At all of our locations, our dedicated employees work to ensure we provide only the highest quality products and solutions.
Our corporate headquarters in Hannover is Kandelium’s finance and marketing center. Our Hannover employees work in close cooperation with our production and mining sites, as well as our sales and marketing teams worldwide.
Our production site in Bad Hönningen is the largest producer of strontium carbonate in the world, as well as the largest producer of barium carbonate outside of China. It is also the location of our sodium percarbonate plant, where we produce the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly product on the market. We not only produce the broadest range of types and qualities – our highly experienced team also produces tailor-made solutions. Our R&D center is dedicated to further increasing the value of our products, and continuous technical improvements ensure we remain the most efficient plant in the world.
Our location in Escúzar is the world’s largest raw material refining plant for celestite. Extraction is done mechanically, and our plant employs unique technology to concentrate the celestite. This ensures the highest-quality and most homogeneous raw material worldwide. Constant innovation allows us to consistently increase our capacity, reduce our energy consumption and implement new ways to protect the environment. We enjoy a strong team spirit and maintain close ties with the local community, taking part in the surrounding villages’ festivals and supporting them with road maintenance, irrigation, and various small projects. Our “Open Doors” policy has met with interest from universities and schools as well as private citizens.
