Group Management Report

2021 was an equally challenging and successful year. Due to the extraordinarily high global demand for our products, ALTANA achieved its highest sales growth in the last ten years. In the process, we demonstrated our performance in terms of production and supply security for our customers in a market environment characterized by unprecedented price increases and shortages. At the same time, we achieved our long-term goals regarding profitability, value creation, occupational safety, and sustainability. We continued to drive forward our strategic research and development projects and digitalization, enhanced our long-term Group financing, and set the course for ALTANA’s further profitable growth through acquisitions.
