INEOS Phenol GmbH & Co.KG

Profile

INEOS Phenol GmbH was originally founded in Gladbeck, a town located in the western part of Germany, by Phenolchemie in 1952.

The company started Phenol production in 1954 and at that time had a total capacity of 8,000 te/a (metric tonnes per annum) of Phenol and 5,000 te/a of Acetone. Continuous improvement together with selective investments has grown the plant capacity over the years. Our Gladbeck facility is now the largest single train Phenol plant in the world and the second largest Phenol production site globally with a capacity of over 650,000 te/a of Phenol and 400,000 te/a of Acetone. In addition to production, the Gladbeck site is also home to both our technology development group and our European customer service centre. The site also provides services for the INEOS Phenol headquarters in Rolle, Switzerland.

INEOS Phenol has high environmental standards which have helped the business develop good and trusting relationships with our neighbours as well as the authorities. Our environmental management system fully complies with ISO 14001: 2004. We are also ISO 9001:2008 certified. Over the years the site has received numerous quality certificates and awards.

Raw materials are transported by pipeline, rail, and truck to the site and over half of the finished products are shipped by rail. Our extensive infrastructure and reliable plant enables us to meet customer requirements.

We aim high at Gladbeck, always striving to satisfy our customers’ requirements for consistent, on specification, on time supply, time after time.
