France’s leading chemicals producer, Arkema is aiming to become one of the global leaders in specialty chemicals. With its 14,000 employees and 90 industrial sites in 40 countries, Arkema has a revenue of €6.1 billion.
Arkema is building the future of the chemical industry using a responsible, innovation-based approach.
With the divestment of its vinyl activities in mid-2012, the Group completed a strategic shift which had been initiated when the company was created in 2004. Arkema now aspires to become one of the global leaders in specialty chemicals.
Arkema is holding world leading positions on 90% of its business portfolio. Arkema’s strategy is based on innovation, an increased presence in the emerging markets and targeted acquisitions.
Arkema, France’s leading chemicals producer, benefits from strong competitive advantages. This was the outcome of a strategy which for six years has been focused on the expansion in higher growth regions and continuous innovation. This strategy has transformed Arkema into a specialty chemicals player.
By 2016, the Arkema group is aiming to become one of the global leaders in this field and to generate sales of €8 billion.
