Innovation cannot stop. More and more innovators are striving to fructify their efforts for innovation with new chemicals. But they lack the capabilities and production assets essential to building the right processes and scaling up production. They also lack the wherewithal required to establish and maintain state-of-the-art technologies required for complex chemical synthesis, organic or otherwise. With its proven track record of helping companies maintain a healthy production cycle, WeylChem Group of Companies has emerged as the trusted chemical production partner to build efficient products.

Founded in 2005 as the fine chemicals platform of the International Chemical Investors Group, WeylChem meets needs that have yet to be fulfilled in the fields of advanced intermediates and care chemicals. With businesses spread across Europe and the US, the company delivers maximum client value through its collaborative spirit in which colleagues, partners, and customers can challenge the status quo, find sustainable solutions by matching challenges with expertise.

An international fine chemicals group, WeylChem has proven its mettle in agrochemical, pharmaceutical, polymer and specialty chemicals, offering custom manufacturing and processing services and advanced intermediates, reagents,

and performance products. WeylChem offers various products and services in two business segments: fine chemicals and consumer care. In fine chemicals, WeylChem custom manufactures exclusive products and services according to customer requirements. It also offers intermediates and reagents, which are used as starting materials for various applications and markets worldwide. Built on a wide range of advanced technologies that can be used at scale, the company’s products are offered for specific and niche markets. On the consumer care front, WeylChem supplies products such as Hydrotropes, Sulfonates, acid catalysts, oxidation catalysts, bleach activators and a growing number of ingredients for industrial and recently cosmetic applications in the home care and surfactant markets. With its technical expertise, the company delivers customized offerings and strives to enhance its portfolio with new developments, applications and formulas based on its years of expertise.

Being a part of the complex industry, WeylChem strives to be a key partner for its clients in their complex supply chains in chemical custom manufacturing. The company maintains swift backward integration and downstream chemistries and innovations such as Halogen Exchange (HALEX) technology for greater manufacturing outcomes. As WeylChem can switch from lab testing to pilot production at an industrial scale, its clients achieve new active ingredients at a commercial scale and reasonable cost. The company’s technology infrastructure includes robotic elements for improved flexibility of the production processes and greater cost-effectiveness.

WeylChem’s custom manufacturing allows firms to enable the right foundation to execute high-quality and standardized custom manufacturing programs. Built on the spirit of partnership and collaboration, the company combines the industry best practices with next-generation technologies to drive the output in the production facilities. The key differentiator for WeylChem is its team of engineering and management experts who fill the gaps in production planning, execution, and management to stay ahead of the challenges. Backed by efficient planning and design, the team calibrates an optimum process configuration to meet the safety and other regulatory aspects in a time-bounded and cost-efficient manner. Project managers send regular updates, maintaining constant dialogue and transparency.


The tailormade research services include literature research, synthetic route evaluation and route scouting, validation and transfer of technical packages, synthesis of initial lab quantities in the range of several grams to first kilograms for analytical, and registration and preparative purposes

WeylChem’s clients can focus on core processes as the company’s chemical plants operate a wide array of chemical reactions with utmost care and responsibility. The company explores viable alternative synthetic pathways or invests in specific equipment in accordance with the clients’ needs to ensure that appropriate technology is always available. The various sites operated by WeylChem have developed one or more key technologies that are renowned for their ability to perform at scale. On the project management front, the company’s team uses software tools to monitor the progress of projects from initial evaluation to development and implementation (pilot trial and first industrial campaign) phases through to commercial production. Visibility, collaboration, and information sharing are the key tenets through which the company continuously improves client relationships and sets the stage for better product innovation.

The company invests heavily in R&D even as it ensures its well-equipped technical and analytical facilities in Europe and North America are performing to their maximum potential. The company provides support through multidisciplinary teams to achieve genuinely scalable, cost-effective and robust processes and products. The teams comprise highly experienced scientists and technicians. Their combined decades of experience encompass a breadth of knowledge, particularly in complex and multi-stage chemical reactions, organic chemistry, oxidation catalysis, HI&I, industrial technologies and scale-up processes.

The company remains open to contract or joint development programs in the areas of process and chemical development. In the area of contract development, WeylChem brings to the table four full chemistry laboratories spread across 400 sq meters. It includes various kilo lab capabilities, including ten reactors and support equipment and access to a broad range of piloting equipment. Through the service, the company accelerates and optimizes chemical development processes and synthesis routes. The tailor-made research services include literature research, synthetic route evaluation and route scouting, validation and transfer of technical packages, synthesis of initial lab quantities in the range of several grams to first kilograms for analytical, and registration and preparative purposes. Besides, the company aces proof-of-principle studies to ensure optimization of screening of solvents and catalysts, shortening of cycle-time, reduction of raw material consumption, waste reduction, and recycling strategies. The company also carries out safety investigations and corrosion studies.

A truly international player, WeylChem has more than 800 employees and manufacturing sites located in Germany, the US, France, and Italy. The company cherishes its legacy of high-class products and services by ensuring high-quality training of staff, good infrastructure, attention to health and safety, as well as to the environment and the impressive know-how developed over the past decades.

The company has built a new production facility for aromatic ring chlorination in Frankfurt-Höchst, Germany, for advanced intermediates. It has also revamped its web presence to match this ambitious business plan. With an improved user experience, visitors can more efficiently explore WeylChem’s diverse offering across four business segments: custom manufacturing, innovation services, care chemicals, and advanced intermediates.
