April 1, 2016 marks the start of another new chapter in Saltigo’s history. Exactly 10 years after the very day the company was founded, Torsten Derr, previously Head of the LANXESS Board of Management’s Commercial & Supply Chain Excellence Initiative, took over as Chief Executive Officer of Saltigo GmbH. Wolfgang Schmitz, who had been in charge of the company since 2007, retiried after a 41-year career in the chemical industry. Derr announced: “Saltigo will continue to play a leading role in the exclusive synthesis of agrochemicals and fine chemicals. With our expertise, flexibility, innovative strength and successful project management, we will maintain and build on our market position by continuing to create added value for our customers.”
