Corporate Structure

Within the ALTANA Group, business activities are arranged in divisions with responsibility for their business results: BYK, ECKART, ELANTAS and ACTEGA.

The companies in the ALTANA Group are represented on four continents. This means that in all regions our products and services are very close to our customers. In addition, we believe that being in close proximity to customers means more than just being available – the fact that key positions are staffed by local employees means that we speak the language of our customers and are thus in a better position to react better and more quickly to their individual wishes. Furthermore, our regional knowledge of the markets and their conditions enables us to react flexibly to changes. Thus, we can grow together with our customers locally and are equipped to face future challenges.
