LEHVOSS Group Profile

Founded in 1894 as a trading firm for chemical and mineral specialties, the focus for many decades was initially on our home market (Germany). Starting in 1990, we used our rock-solid foundation there as the basis to internationalize the company, with the goal of offering our products and services across Europe. Today we operate subsidiaries in key European markets, each staffed with local specialists, even as we look to continue our expansion through additional national subsidiaries across Europe.

In 2013 we unveiled our successful series of LUVOCOM® modified high-performance thermoplastics in the USA through our subsidiary LEHVOSS North America, LLC and in China through LEHVOSS (Shanghai) Chemical Trading Co. Ltd.

The growing importance of the Chinese procurement market led us to establish offices in Shanghai and Dalian.

In 2015 the LEHVOSS Group acquired the UK-based company Gee Lawson and integrated it into LEHVOSS UK. This significantly strengthened our activities in this area.

The LEHVOSS corporate group (not counting equity holdings) employed 637 workers in 2018, earning 384 million € in revenues. The LEHVOSS Nutrition division contributed with 40 million € in revenues.
