Our material systems – here chemistry is in charge!
Sonderhoff Chemicals is, as part of the Sonderhoff enterprise group, the centre of expertise for the development and production of the Sonderhoff chemical portfolio: Sealing, potting and gluing systems based on PVC, silicone and polyurethane.
With our more than 55 years of experience and our more than 1,000 formulae, we develop tailor-made material systems for our customers here at our Cologne base.
As a mid-sized, highly specialised chemical company, we concentrate on the specific requirements of every single customer and offer solutions that could not be achieved by off-the-shelf products. Specific features such as low emissions, fast curing, UL94 HF1, food contact suitability or the use of sustainable raw materials are questions for which we can give the answers.
Sonderhoff Chemicals – personal commitment makes the difference!
Sonderhoff Chemicals, along with Sonderhoff Engineering, makes up the product basis for “System 2”, the interplay of Material and Machine for an optimal application Process. Around 90 employees are engaged in this in Cologne, and achieved a total turnover in 2015 of over 25M EUR.
The core area is product development, from R&D through application-specific development right up to quality assurance of the various material systems based on PU, PVC and Silicone. One in four employees is active in this field.
Continuous and totally reliable supply is guaranteed currently by our 25 colleagues in production.
Here we produce, from our more than 1,000 formulations, our customer-specific delivery batches with absolutely constant quality and a production volume of over 5,000 tonnes a year.
And because we have made customer service our mission, over one in three of our employees work in direct contact with clients, whether in sales, application technology, services or as the friendly voice on the telephone in interior sales.
And we’ve got it in writing that it all makes sense to do so: Sonderhoff Chemicals is certified to ISO / TS 16949:2009, ISO 14001:2004 and AEO.
ABB, BMW, BOSCH, BSH, Camfil, Dräxlmaier, Fronius, Greif, Hella, KOSTAL, MANN+HUMMEL, Mauser, Rehau, RITTAL, Siemens, Swoboda, Valeo, Volkswagen, Weidplas, Zumtobel – some of the companies that trust our expertise and experience; something of which we are very proud.
VDMA, Kunststoffinstitut Lüdenscheid, Fachverband Schaumkunststoffe (FSK), kunststoffland nrw – for us, as a highly specialised and simultaneously international enterprise, scientific networks and knowledge exchange are of great importance.
All our employees are ambassadors for the Sonderhoff company. And even our entry-level employees will go on to define the shape of Sonderhoff for the future. That is why we are very happy to train up young people into specialists.
