Mannheim – Rhein Chemie Rheinau GmbH is giving itself a fresh image: FOCUSING ON MANNHEIM. FOR A WORLD IN MOTION. That is the message that will appear on various billboard posters in the city from today. The dynamic motifs express innovative solutions through which Rhein Chemie keeps the world in motion, for example in the aviation, automotive and mechanical engineering industries.

“With our new campaign we highlight the fact that Mannheim remains central to our plans. We are committed to the location where Rhein Chemie was founded 122 years ago,” said Dr. Anno Borkowsky, Managing Director of Rhein Chemie. “At the same time we want to grow further as a globally aligned group – both in Mannheim and worldwide.”

Rhein Chemie has 10 production sites in nine countries. Only last month, Rhein Chemie announced the acquisition of Darmex S.A. in Argentina, a leading manufacturer of release agents and bladders for the tire industry.

The new billboard posters mark the start of a global brand campaign. Rhein Chemie has also adopted the look of the new campaign in its Internet.
