Galata Chemicals commenced commercial operations on May 1, 2010, but our products and
plants have been servicing the needs of our customers for almost 50 years. Both our Taft, Louisiana and
Lampertheim, Germany manufacturing facilities began production in the 1960s. Through the years our plants
and products had owners including Argus Chemical, GE, Ciba, Witco and Chemtura.
With a strong portfolio of products and brands, superior manufacturing facilities and commitment of our
people, Galata Chemicals leverages several strategic differentiators.
Continuous global investment in our research, production, and customer facing
- We continue to build a high-quality team of
technical service people and realize that growing our business is only accomplished by helping our
customers meet their needs with innovative solutions.
- We are actively investing in building world-class
customer care functions at our manufacturing facilities and ensuring they are staffed properly to
deliver the support our customers require.
- We are deepening our global research and
development teams through investments in application new product development which will complement our
existing, and support expansion into new, markets.
- We are expanding our global sales team in both
established markets, where we can better serve our existing customers, and in emerging economies where
we can help these markets during their growth and development phases.
